Dear Mr. Webb -
Upon reflection we think that we should certainly have the house in question -
The one of the Copper Door! The acquiring of the same under the most advantageous conditions, I leave of course to your finer methods & diplomacy -
For [p. 2] one year only, I suppose Mr Ashbee might not see much reason for a reduction in price - Therefore we will propose three years' agreement, at say £135 per. an.
What do you think? - What I mean is that we want the house -
J McNeill Whistler
