Dear Mr. Whistler and friend
I am very glad receiving your telegramm [sic] and your kind letter - I had sent you the prepared page to Paris, hôtel Chattam, [sic] and to London, at your house. Did you not receive
d them? But now all is right. I have got your page, and I hope it will not be to [sic] late for making the cliché [sic]. Your name, quality and the butterfly is yet done, and very well "autographié."
I hope to see you at Brussels soon and shake friendly your hand
2. telegramm [sic] and your kind letter
Probably JW to O. Maus, #09237 and #09242. These and other letters dating from January and February 1888 document the safe passage of JW's contribution to the [Exhibition], Société des XX (Vingts), Brussels, 1888 to which he sent eight works. These included Arrangement in Black and Brown: The Fur Jacket (YMSM 181), and St.James's Place, Houndsditch (K.290).
A reference to the catalogue of the exhibition. JW had been asked to write a sheet of his own listing his entries. A facsimile of this appeared in the catalogue.
