I would be so grateful to you if you would
get allow my great friend Lady Rivers Wilson's brother a chance of exhibiting his picture at your fourth coming show at Princes Club Hall. his [p. 2] little exhibition (private) was a great success. I may tell you truthfully "without intent to deceive" that he thinks there is no one who can paint but Whistler!. I suppose I dare not to you use the word impressionist I would fear to hear your scream from accross [sic] the channel but [p. 3] I feel sure that his work is what you would approve.
The picture he wants to exhibit is housed at Harrods Stores[;] the address that would find him is
The Honble Harold Mostyn
c/o The Hon Lady Rivers Wilson
21 Pont St. S W.
the latter has asked me again & again to write to you about it, and I would be deeply grateful [p. 4] if you would give him this chance of showing this Picture off.
I have not seen little Webb - lately I hope I am going to see you when you come over about the exhibition this house is exactly opposite the side door of the said Princes Skating Club - so do make an appointment with me when you come over if only for a few minutes.
Yrs very truly
Janey S Campbell
