110. Rue du Bac - Paris.

Dear Mr Hanson -

Enclosed five pounds -

It is difficult - & by this time I had hoped you would have managed something

Go to the Curtis people[3] and say that I beg that they will look up the "New York World" - and send any numbers containing articles upon the [p. 2] Paris Salon - from the first which is important -

They will know how to find them at the London Office - suppose they must have begun towards the end of April -

J McN Whistler

I find I have accidentally crossed the cheque - but I daresay the Capt[4] will change it for you - or the Doctor[5] -
