3.  Griffiths v Whistler
Capt. Edward Clifton Griffith, gallery landlord [more]. In 1874, JW took the Flemish Gallery, 48 Pall Mall for a year in order to show his works. The rent was £315 per annum, payable in four instalments. The gallery was hung with maroon cloth but JW decided to redecorate it in primrose, pink-grey and brown distemper for his exhibition. In January 1875, Griffiths requested that the gallery should be returned to its original state and repair work done. However, JW admitted liability only for the rehanging of the cloth (#11442). Griffiths replied, complaining that he was losing rent in the delay (#12145). On 29 January, he took legal proceedings against JW claiming back rent and costs of repair to the gallery (see E. C. Griffiths to JW, #12140). See also correspondence between JW and E. C. Griffiths between 20 and 30 January 1875 (#11445, #12165, #01603, #11441, #12148, #11444). The number '77' written in another hand at the top of the current document (#12170) relates it to this sequence of documents. Related documents joined to this one have other periods of time inserted: 'five days' (5 March 1875, #13747), 'three days' (10 March 1875, #13748), 'three days' (24 March 1875, #13749).
