Dear Mr Whistler
I really don't wish to bore you, but at the possible risk of doing so I remind you that I have no answer to my letter of some three weeks' ago wherein I made a proposal for the American reprint of Ten O'Clock
On Wednesday next I leave for New York, and I should be pleased to convey your reply, if you [p. 2] will tell me what it is.
Yours very truly
J. R. Osgood
