Dear Mr Webb -
Is the enclosed of any importance? as only an empty threat - I send it in its envelope - showing that my address is not very clear to them -
My will - It has been running in my head that this ought to be attended to - And though very much to be altered in detail, I think that a rough draft might be at once made, which we might work upon -
Could you come and dine with me on Friday? and perhaps we could draw up something? - I might come down [p. 2] to you at about 6. o' clock - and then we could drive up from the office together -
J McN Whistler
'Whistler Will 1896'
1. [25 May/June 1896]
Dated from reference to JW's will. JW reconsidered his will shortly after the death of his wife Beatrix Whistler (1857-1896), née Beatrice Philip, artist [more], in May 1896. He decided to appoint Rosalind Birnie Philip (1873-1958), JW's sister-in-law [more], as his ward and executrix. See JW to W. Webb, #06229, and W. Webb to R. Birnie Philip, #06230.
