Dear Mr Whistler,
I thank you very much for your kind letter and I am very glad to hear that you are coming so soon. I hope your visit will lead to something since you would be willing to paint a portrait here.
Hoping to hear soon that you will be here on such or such a day when I hope to have the pleasure of meeting you and Mrs Whistler at the Station,
I remain, with kind regards
E. J. van Wisselingh
The question of painting the mother of Willem Reinhard Boelens (b. 1840), Baron van Lynden, banker and collector [more], had been raised in a previous letter (#07102). It never came to pass.
The painting was shown at Tentoonstelling van Kunstwerken van Levende Meesters, Amsterdam, 1889.
