Dear Mr. Graves -

This is to introduce Mr. Theodore Child[3] of Paris, who would like much to see the picture of Miss Corder[4] - or if that be not handy, to look at your reproduction in Mezzotint, with a view to an article with wood cut in Harpers Magazine -

This I am sure you will see is all to the good - and I doubt not that you will [p. 2] do all in your power to help in the matter -

Very faithfully Yrs

J McN. Whistler
