[p. 2] Duke of M. This can be arranged outside B. V. & Co but only as a matter of compliment for if any payment passes it belongs by right to the house of Goupil. This you will kindly leave in our hands for the moment for the Duke has promised to make an appointment immediately after Easter. You may be sure this matter will be well attended to.
Drummonds. We send £25 to the Bank. Way has been paid £33. 19. 3 his whole claim for Catalogues & less the 5% we claimed on your behalf for cash. There is still a little more - not much - a/c not yet ready.
[p. 3] Album. We shall have the proofs of all the photos next week. We have not seen one yet as the photographers have been so busy & weather bad. Yes we can use the B. V & Co 'Portrait of My Mother'. We did not offer them for sale here, only the little lithograph of which we have sold 10.
We told Sickert again to write to you & send his article.
We open again Tuesday, but all important matters stand until Wednesday.
Yours very truly
