Dear Mr Whistler
It is decided to have the 'Bébés' for the A. J. & Messrs Virtue will give the order to Way in due course.
The pastels were bought I understand by Wallis of the French Gallery, but I am not quite certain as [p. 2] there were some trade "arrangements" into which we would not enter -
I should like to have the Sarasate & get you the thousand for it if it is possible.
We have arranged with Potter to send the 'Blue Wave' picture to New York & we may also send the upright 'Battersea Reach'. If we do this we should ask you to make the consular declaration.
For your expenses we should send you a [p. 3] draft for 100 francs. Kindly say if this would be agreeable
Yours vy truly
D. C. Thomson
