I fear that my corrections have rather muddled the proof[3], so I have written out in full the first part of the paragraph where they occur -

I hope that you will make it all clear to the printer -

Do turn up all right tomorrow [p. 2] morning - and by the way remember not a word to any one about my new method for the amazing pictures!

1.  [February 1892?]
JW was at this address between February 1890 and 1892; however, the reference to proofs suggests a date of 1892.

2.  Thomas Way
Possibly to Thomas Way (1837-1915), lithographic printer [more]; another possibility is William Heinemann (1863-1920), publisher [more].

3.  proof
Possibly of the catalogue for Nocturnes, Marines and Chevalet Pieces, Boussod, Valadon & Cie, Goupil Gallery, London, 1892.
