Dear Mr Whistler
I was of the opinion that everything in "The West" was done with lightning speed. From the enclosed just received it seems they are in no more hurry than in this country to acquire "Art"
You spoke of having a friend in Boston.
If you have not had the opportunity of verbal communication with her perhaps you might be good enough to write as you will see from the letter that the secretary intends [p. 2] making an effort in a month or so.
With kind regards to yourself & Mrs Whistler & trusting to have the pleasure of seeing you soon.
you might return enclosure when writing
