Monday. July 11.

Dear Mr Thomson -

This line in great haste to catch post - I sent off this morning ten sets of photos[3]. signed - and have received by messenger ten more sets, which will be signed by the time you receive this tomorrow - making twenty sets this time -

You had better send me cheque at once as I wish to get off soon - though I think it very ridiculous that the Goupils don't send the full remainder of eighty gs -

Look how daintily I do my part -

I don't understand more albums not having gone - there must be some blunder over here - for I know that they have been much asked for -

I shall write especially to thank you about the prompt and [p. 2] brilliant way in which you have met me in the matter of Mr. Dignam[4] -

Always

J McN Whistler
