Dear Mr. Brown -
I wish you would send round now and beg the Mr Dutton (I think you said that is the name of your mount cutter) you spoke to me about, to come round to me
this tomorrow morning between 12 and 1. o'clock -
All right about Mr & Mrs Peck. But as you have been in communication direct - you had better write and say that I shall be able to receive them on
Wednesday Saturday afternoon at half past 3 o'clock, and that I shall be very pleased to see them -
J McN Whistler
That is all right - is n't it?
