GUSTAV LAUSER[3],
BOOK & PRINTSELLER.

25, GARRICK STREET,
LONDON, W. C.

9. July 1901.

Dear Mr Kennedy:

Only a few lines to say that Mr James McN. Whistler called here to-day & to ask how you are; he says that he has written to you & received no answer. Why?

I told him that I would write to you & acquaint you of the purpose of his visit.

Business is absolutely dead, the last sale at Christie's[4] will take place next Thursday & the catalogue reads very well in the way of Reynolds[5], &c.

[p. 2] Hoping you are getting on well I am with best regards
Yours very sincerely

A. Roth
