Dear Sir -
I beg to acknowledge your most kind & courteous letter - of the 9th inst. - and I hasten at once to rectify an unfortunate mistake! -
It was during my absence that the Agent, in Paris, collected, by my order, the etchings for the Dresden Exhibition. - The lithograph, in your list, should have been removed from among them - as if belongs to Mr. William Heinemann, and was lent by him at my request, for the Universal Exhibition in 1900. -
May I beg that you will kindly have this returned at once, to Mr. Heinemann, at this address, 6. Norfolk Street, Park Lane - London - and allow me to replace it by another lithograph, or an etching - as you prefer. -
I need not say how greatly I regret the trouble this must give you - While I take this occasion to tell you how deeply I feel the honour of having work of mine in your most famous and rare Collection!
And [p. 3] And I have the honour to be
Your obedient Servant
J. McNeill Whistler.
Prof. Dr. Lehrs
Director of the Royal Print Room -
P. S. Of course I shall hold over the £50. until I hear from you further -
