Dear Mr Whistler
Enclosed I am sending you check for £10. 10 6 which is the amount due to you for printing the etchings as per enclosed account. This has nothing to do with the £20 - which we sent you on account of the lithographs which we still hold & await exhibition of. If you can print us some more [p. 2] Doorways we should be much obliged. Kindly do so when you have leisure.
We still have in hopes of having an exhibition of your works. We are to open one in a fortnights time of Phil Mays drawings. I believe that you have expressed a good opinion of them. It would give his show a lift if you could let me have this in black & white that we might show to admirers of your work & who would be guided by it.
I do hope that you have better account to give of Mrs. Whistlers health!
Believe me to be
Marcus B Huish
