My dear Whistler -
I wish you to have in writing this fact - Your cheque for £110 - held by Mr Blott I hold myself entirely responsible for. - I gave it to Mr Blott in settlement of an account of mine - You have not received one penny upon it, - the arrangement being that I could renew it with Mr Blott by paying the necessary interest. - I undertake that you shall incur no annoyance whatever, and promise to find the money when needed, as I did on the occasion of getting the cheque -
Charles. A. Howell -
J A McN. Whistler. Esq.
This letter was copied entirely by JW and bears his signature. This was the first of a series of letters about some financial arrangements between JW, Howell and Blott, dating from February to June 1878 (#10340, #00309, #09002, #11161, #00310, #10055, #09255 and #07619). It was almonst certainly the 'copy' sent with JW's letter to Blott on 5 March 1878 (#00309) and may have been written with Howell's connivance, to postpone the threat of legal injunctions (see #09255).
