Dear Mr Thomson -
I shall have to read your letter again to make it all out - Meanwhile I wish to acknowledge the cheque for £28 -18-
The new lithographs will soon be ready & I will send you 3 sets -
You dont say whether you have received the [p. 2] Marine - "Violet & Blue - among the rollers"?
Let me know when you get it - and have the back put in and pasted down all right - also the frame ought to be cleaned and retouched -
This they neglected to do on the Boulevards although I told them about it -
I have also a little water colour - I think I showed it to you - sea piece - If you want it you can let me know -
I hear you have had back three of Mr Potters pictures - ? -
Write me a line -
J McN Whistler
