33. Rue de Tournon. Paris -
Dear Sir -
Have you no further details to give me? -
I wish you would write also any news you may have a propos of portraits? - You know we like your letters -
Americans must be all over the place! but I can't help in the discovery of Mr. Waggamann!
I wanted to send the "Ocean" on to Münich - but I hear that Mr. Matherson - I don't remember well his name - wants it back - so he had better have it - as I want him to lend it next year for Chicago - & I have written to Joyant to send it back to you - I must send you, for your enjoyment, copy of [p. 2] my correspondence with Mr Beck!!! Secretary - I think you deserve it - though you are so reticent yourself! -
Are you coming over again? The studio now is in a lovely condition -
Very faithfully Yrs
J. McN Whistler
I am going to tackle the people who have refused to pay for cleaning. etc - and am glad to have Mr. Leathart's letters - Send me
any all correspondence of the kind with any of them -
Also all the frames that these people have refused had better be sent through your house to me -
By the way did you send photographs of "La Dame au Brodequin Jaune"? and have you had any answer?
