1.  [30] September [1878]
Dated from address, and postmark which bears the year date '1878'. JW made a mistake with the date; the 30 September was a Monday in 1878.

2.  Henry J. Murcott
Henry John Murcott (b. 1835 or 1836), picture framer, carver and gilder [more]. JW was completing Arrangement in Brown and Black: Portrait of Miss Rosa Corder (YMSM 203) and may well have been ready to order a frame for it.
