Notes:

1.  [1888/1894]
Dated from the period of the author's marriage to JW.

2.  Beatrix Whistler
List of JW's pastels written in the hand of Beatrix Whistler (1857-1896), née Beatrice Philip, artist [more].

3.  Pastels
The works listed include: The Fortune Teller - a red note (M.1083); Spring (M.1397); Red and black (M.934); Blue and Violet. Lapis Lazuli (M.1070); and Grey and Pink (M.1209). 'An opal', by the price, may have been an oil, although the figure '36' in the first column appears to have been corrected from '46' rather than '436.'

4.  80. 80
The price of this item has been altered, perhaps from '50 50' or '60 60'.
