Enclosed I send Wunderlich's cheque signed. Pay into my account at once - Write to Wunderlich and acknowledge the safe arrival of the cheque - Tell him that the price of the little Charing Cross Bridge[3]" is 8 guineas - That I say if he originally had it for 6 that does not prevent its going up since - but that never this time as he did not know - only next time he will pay 8 -

I enclose also cheque for Williams[4] [p. 2] money - I make this cheque 3 - 10 - the change will go into your account -

Keep my letter before you always when you write - And now write no more and send no more letters to me until I send my new address -

J McN. Whistler
