[two butterfly signatures]
JW appears to be trying out or demonstrating three forms of butterfly signature; the first has a trefoil behind it, such as he added on his marriage to Beatrix Godwin in 1888; the second is in the simple form used to sign lithographs at this date; the third (at end of letter) is a variant on the first, but is in a slightly more untidy mode.
