21, CHEYNE WALK,
My dear Jack -
I wish you would first of all get picture out of Dowdeswells' rooms - it can only do me harm - and I do beg that you will not dream of leaving it there during your month's absence - Couldn't you have it sent round to your brothers at once? -
By the way are you staying there? [p. 2] and could you not look in here tonight or tomorrow morning as early as you like - say 9.30 - Or much better will you not come and dine with us tonight - 8 o'clk.
J McN. Whistler
1. [1/2 August 1891?]
This letter appears to date from shortly after JW's telegram of [30 July 1891], #09041, and before #09035 (dated [3/4 August 1891?]), which suggests Chapman would arrive in London on 6 August 1891.
'5' is written at the top of p. 1 in an unknown hand.
4. 21, CHEYNE WALK,
The address is printed in yellow ink.
C. W. or one of his sons, Charles and Walter Dowdeswell, of Dowdeswell and Dowdeswell, art dealers.
