Dear Sirs,

re Whistler. Replying to yours of the 11th[3], I can only confirm what I said to you when you called the other day. Our Editor is of opinion that the paragraph in our issue of Wednesday last[4] sufficiently meets the case.

Yours truly,

W. T. Hodges

Manager.

Notes:

1.  W. T. Hodges
W. T. Hodges, manager of the Globe [more]. The Globe appears to have been one of several newspapers that reported, incorrectly, that JW had been awarded a gold medal at Universal Exhibition, Paris, 1900, for a painting painted earlier than specified in the exhibition rules. See also JW and G. and W. Webb to the Daily Chronicle, #00796, #06260; and to Messrs Cassell, #06262.

2.  George and William Webb
JW's solicitors.

3.  11th
Possibly a variation on #06262.
