Dear Mr Whistler,
Will you kindly indicate which of [p. 2] the colours you prefer. Probably none of them will be quite what you want, but I hope they will be sufficient for you to indicate which you like & we can send further proofs if required & you can spare time to examine them at once.
The block of course requires making ready & if you have any suggestions
to as to certain parts being lighter or darker we should be glad to have them.
Yours very truly
D. C. Thomson

[p. 3] We have had a lot of people to see the 'Atelier' picture which is in the P. M. Budget this week, but money seems so scarce that we cannot get anyone to buy it or almost anything else.
Mr Poole has lent all his little pictures to 'The Fine Art Society' who are having an exhibition of some kind.
Have you any thing in oil new that we could have from you to buy?
