This is a reply to Thomson's letter of 3 March 1892, #05694. Goupil's stamp records the receipt of this letter, probably on the day after it was written, and Thomson replied on that same day (#05695).
''13B', 'Monday after 10-30' and 'Portrait' were added at the top of p. 1, in various hands, one of which is probably Thomson.
