See the earlier correspondence between JW and Griffith between 20 and 30 January 1875 concerning the condition of the Flemish Gallery, the venue for Mr Whistler's Exhibition, Flemish Gallery, Pall Mall, London, 1874 (#11445, #12165, #11442, #01603, #11441, #12148, #12145, #11444). The gallery was hung with maroon cloth but JW decided to redecorate the gallery in primrose, pink-grey and brown distemper for his exhibition. Griffith requested that the gallery should be returned to its original decorative state. However, JW admitted liability only for the rehanging of the cloth (#11442). Griffith replied, complaining that he was losing rent in the delay over the redecoration of the gallery and claiming back rent from JW (#12145).
The last instalment of the rent owed to Griffith by JW.
