Dear Mr Thomson.
As to the extra proof, you can put it aside to be sent elsewhere when I tell you -
Was it not right - to send the lithographs by post? - How else did you expect them?
If there is an easier way do let me know as I might do better next time -
I shall tell your people here to send you over the Marine: -
"Blue & Violet, - Among the Rollers" -
[p. 2] I want two hundred guineas for it - you know - but as we said trust entirely to your discretion & wisdom in the matter of final arrangement -
Write and tell me if you have now a purchaser -
J Mc N Whistler -
