1.  Charles James Whistler Hanson
Charles James Whistler Hanson (1870-1935), engineer, son of JW and Louisa Fanny Hanson [more]. He was acting as JW's secretary.

2.  William Ayerst Ingram
William Ayerst Ingram (1855-1913), marine and landscape painter [more]. The abrupt tone of Hanson's wire was echoed in a subsequent one from JW to Ingram (3 October 1887, #10838). Ingram's reply showed that he was very worried about a possible rift between himself and JW, occasioned by problems within the Royal Society of British Artists (#11321).
