Dear Mr Whistler

I send by bearer two pulls of the rag shop, (not "Chelsea[3]" rags but Drury Lane rags[4]!). It is rather bare and thin at present from not having been printed for some time since, in the re-transferring, it will doubtless come fuller and richer. We will have the letterpress added as close to the top right-hand edge as [p. 2] possible. Will you please say whether the drawing is rightly placed on the sheet? this is the paper and size to be used in the large number.

I also send you an impression from my lithograph of "The Mother[5]".

With kind regards
Yours very sincerely

Tom. R. Way.

J. McN Whistler Esqre
