Dear Mr Whistler
As I wired you this morning the agreement was returned to your lawyers. They no doubt will send it on to you today as I made but few alterations & those for the most part in your favour - such for [p. 2] instance as specifying when the money beyond £270 shd be paid you - & elucidating the percentage clause -
I have also your telegram this morning - I will select the proofs with Mr Brown -
Will you send Ways instructions to select those which we shall require from him to make up -
Marcus B Huish
I notice that by no means all of the lithographs (Paris) are signed[.] There are no signed impressions of 11 of the 36. Shall you be up [p. 3] in London before the Exhibition & be able to sign them for it is essential that they should be signed for we shall have a good deal of trouble to convince people of the
difficulty of difference between these & those which have been published in the Studio & elsewhere. It is a pity that one appears at the moment that our show opens - I see that the Academy this week draws attention to the fact that they have been sold for 1d each -
We ought also to have [p. 4] the prices fixed concurrently with the signing of the agreement - Can you let us have these.
