Dear Mr Dowdeswell .
I dont know the pictures by these numbers - but I fancy one is "Holland" & another "Hoxton" two of the best: I think your customer most impudent[.] What is the third? Please [p. 2] send word back by William and then I will wire -
If because of pressure I let the pictures go - I beg you will tell your man - that he can go to H-ll for a mean skunk! - Who no doubt knows devilish well the advantage he takes of the occasion -

Dated from references to pictures (see below).
Watercolours from JW's solo exhibition, 'Notes' - 'Harmonies' - 'Nocturnes', Second Series, Messrs Dowdeswell, London, 1886. The first may have been either Blue and silver - Holland (M.980) (cat. no. 14) or Brown and gold - Holland (M.979) (cat. no. 38). The second was probably Red and brown - Hoxton (M.1004) (cat. no. 60).
