My dear Tom -

Upon reflection - I suppose you have used up all the sheets I just sent you - so I shall send more which you will receive on Monday I hope - meanwhile if you had others as you thought, left over from before - you may have gone on with them - Nothing could possibly be finer than this last printing[4] any how - so if you had to wet the paper, I would certainly always wet it - the impressions come out so firm and soft at the same time -

I have been busy in the studio - but will [sic] soon you will have new things -

With kindest messages
