Dear Walter de Dowdeswell -

Can you look in here tomorrow morning the first thing on your way to town - I want to show you another beautiful pastel for Mr Hutchinson[3] -

Very probably he will turn up himself - as I asked him today - but he had gone to church -

Also there are the last state of the etchings -

I have not heard [p. 2] a word from Mr Hutchinson about the drawing of the other day - neither have I received my frame - Perhaps he has not as yet had his picture?
