Dear Leyland -

I will be again greatly obliged if you could let me have some more money on account - You see I ask without hesitation as you were kind enough to say I might - and I would like to have a hundred - Also I think [p. 2] that you will be pleased with the final oil sketch of your picture[3] -

The picture[4] itself is getting on but I may not show for a week yet -

Sincerely Yours

J Whistler -

I wonder if it were not too much trouble would you send me the money by tuesday night, as I expect an attack [p. 3] from the enemy on Wednesday morning!
