Record 1 of 1
Dun Ford Cottage
Did you see P. M. G. of July 1.
I told you my conversation with Stead.
I think he will walk clean in to H. M. S's "gentlemanly" shoes.
[p. 2] Fancy an art-critic recording that some asses frame copperplates.
Cultivate the gentle & sympathetic G. T. whose address is
311 Fulham Road S. W.
His stuff does execution. He is not what Mr. Hanson wd. call too narrow in his views.
Charming letter from Russell Morney. Said he valued my [matter?] exceedingly & saw in it real strength & character for the paper.
Your cartoon reigns here over the mantelpiece of the hall -
1. [3/10 July 1889?]
Dated by reference to exhibition (see below).
Written on the left in another hand in pencil.
4. P. M. G.
Pall Mall Gazette, 1 July 1889.
7. Queen Square show
[Exhibition of the work of J. McN. Whistler], College for Working Men and Women, London, 1889, which was organised by Sickert.
8. H. M. S
Possibly Morton Harcourt Sands (1869-1959), collector [more]; however, if the initials were written in another order, he may have meant Marion Henry Alexander Spielmann (1858-1948), journalist and writer on art [more], who seems more appropriate, in the context of the letter.
'asses' is double and 'copperplates' triple underlined.
12. Russell Morney
Russell Morney, possibly a journalist.
14. collection of etchings
There is no record of a significant collection of JW's etchings by Sickert.
