Oct 8th 1891.

Dear Mrs Whistler

I am surprised that I have not heard from you[.] I am anxious that you should complete the Window[3] in its details so that it may be placed in the hands of the glass people without any delay. I expect the faculty will be granted before the end of the month. And I want [p. 2] the window completed by the end of the year, so there is no time to lose.

I should like to know the name of the firm in whose hands you intend to place it.

With kind regards remain
Yours sincerely

J Holme.
