Dear Mr. Huish -
He need not hurry to come by the eleven o'clock train - the 1. o clock from Watterloo will do just as well - indeed better - for I shall be [p. 2] hard at my work as long as I have any day light -
By the one o'clock he gets here at about 6 - which will be capital - and we have the whole long evening - Charming!
In terrible haste
Very Sincerely Yrs
J McN. Whistler
The Royal Lion -
Lyme Regis -
Every thing will be ready for Mr Brown - Room - & all that - & trap waiting for him at Axminster -
Only you must wire in the morning the hour he is to arrive - (at Axminster)

Dated from the almanac and from the reference to E. G. Brown's visit to Lyme Regis, also mentioned in JW's letter to B. Whistler of this date, #06632. JW worked at the seaside town of Lyme Regis, Dorset between September and December 1895.
4. Mr Brown
Ernest George Brown (1853 or 1854-1915), assistant manager at the Fine Art Society [more]. This relates to JW's forthcoming exhibition, Mr Whistler's Lithographs, The Fine Art Society, London, 1895 which opened in December at the Fine Art Society. In a previous letter (#02959), JW suggested that Brown come down to Lyme Regis and they would go over the details of the exhibition together.
