Dear Mr Ford -
I had hoped that you might have called in before now - for they said at Lows Exchange that you only sent for your letters once a week - so that by misadventure you may not have yet received the one that is lying there for you -
We are off to Holland for a [p. 2] couple of weeks - where I hope to see about the Exhibition - and perhaps I may manage to perpetrate some little matters in the way of etching, or water colour -
I read the paragraph in the N. Y. Herald - capital! -
Did you see the one in the London Sun? - of the same date -
With kindest regards to yourself and Mrs Ford, always
In great haste as usual! -

21 August was a Wednesday, not Thursday in 1889, but the reference to a trip to Holland and exhibition suggests the letter dates from 1889, when JW was about to go to Holland.
