Dear Mr Whistler,
The lithographs looked complete & elegant in their new toilettes & are all that the most fastidious could desire.
I hope to see the Grafton on Thursday & will write - It opens on Saturday.
Not much news: - we may have some shortly, but nothing [decided?]
[p. 2] I am glad to hear you are so busy.
Kindly think of the Lithograph for the Art Journal.
'Arry. There was a very short remark in the Times yesterday (15th) saying his works were sometimes like Rosetti [sic] & sometimes like Monet, & that he would have been better to keep the collection for his private friends.
Enclosed is his reply. Also a note that a man insisted on leaving with postage
Yours vy truly
D. C. Thomson

3. Lithograph for the Art Journal
Thomson had originally suggested using Vitré: The Canal (C.63), then Conversation under the Statue, Luxembourg Gardens (C.69), and seevral other lithographs were considered before eventually they agreed on Nursemaids: 'Les Bonnes du Luxembourg' (C.81), which was published in The Art Journal, vol. 46, no. 120, December 1894.
