Dear Sir -

I certainly hope to be present at the dinner given to Mr Edmund Yates[4], as an evidence of our sympathy and friendship for him - and, although absolutely inefficient in any management matter, I shall be very much pleased to find my name on the list of Stewards - as you propose -

Enclosed, I beg to send [p. 2] cheque for £1.—15—

Faithfully Yours -

J. McNeill Whistler
