Mr Whistler.

Dear Sir,

Pardon my addressing you but I wish to ask you kind permission to write an article[3] of you for one of the American magazines.

If you will grant me this favor will you please aid me by sending me your latest photograph as well as any printed items or articles written by yourself which you are willing for me to use.

I shall esteem such a favor highly and trust that you will not think me presumptuous,

Very truly yours,

(Miss) Mabel Percy Haskell,

16, Marlborough Street,
Boston, Mass:
