Dear Mr Reid -

I have sent you by todays post five new lithographs[3] - fresh, and I hope you will think lovely! - I am as you will see in a good humour with them myself -

The little figure[4] in drapery, seated, is three guineas - she is really too dainty - besides I dont know yet but what it may not last as long as the others which [are] as usual two guineas - [p. 2] The discount as usual 15. percent -

Do you want any more? -

I have lots of things in the atelier - and among them several new pastels! -

What news?

In haste

J McN Whistler
