Dear Mr Dowdeswell -

Forgive the stamp! Sunday night and nothing lying about -

You had better send Mr. Flower[3] the price list complete, at once - but it is not necessary to mark off the sold pictures from the rest - leave him to ask any further questions, as he may require -

The pictures themselves he might be able to see again in my Studio - unless you think it wiser to have them all back -

Yours truly

J McN Whistler
