J. McNeil [sic] Whistler, Esq.,
110 Rue de Bac,
Dear Sir, --
I trust that by the time you receive this latter [sic], the picture will be well on its way, as I am anxious to see it, and hope to derive great pleasure from its possession.
I enclose you a draft for 840 pounds on the London bank, in accordance with your request, which I trust you will find correct, and I hope when you pay your expected visit to this country you will not fail to redeem the promise contained in your letter to call on me.
I shall be glad to place the picture at your disposal for the Chicago exhibition as requested by you, and have to thank you for the care which you have expended in the proper packing of the painting.
Very sincerely yours,
After he left in 1855 for a student life in Paris, JW never visited the USA again.
