Mon cher ami -
You must forgive my not answering your letter before - We have been out of town, and I have been very busy - and not too well -
We have thought the matter out, and I find that it would never do for me to involve myself in such an expensive undertaking as Mr Creighs estimate would make it -
Therefore please thank him for the trouble he has so kindly taken in considering the [p. 2] matter, and tell him that I must give it up - with regret -
I am off to Liverpool - on the hanging Committee! -
When I get back you must come round and see me -
Jas McN Whistler -
P. S. Please give bearer the drawings that were sent to you -
Charles Deschamps Esq.
