Rawlinson. As the picture is on its way & has been sent in a case which was going at any rate will you kindly look at it & tell us what you think. Its condition as at present is a little to the detriment of your pictures in general for people might think they will all go this way.
[p. 2] The Fur Jacket. Many thanks for having it sent.
Lady Meux. Do you require the glass kept on this for the New Salon? It will make the carriage to Paris very costly
Catalogue. The quotation is charming! We shall prepare the list in print as you require with plenty margins.
Posters. We send you the first pull of Ways idea. Kindly say as soon as possible how you like it.
Modern Painters. Vol. I is being sent [p. 3] to you to-day. The others will follow. Enclosed are notes of some apt quotations the idea being to show that Ruskin & Whistler really started with the same ideas that Whistler kept faithful to them & Ruskin went in for Pre-Raphaelitism[,] Mr Frith & all that superficial stuff.
Please keep these volumes for me as they were a personal present
