21, CHEYNE WALK,
Dear Mr Robertson -
In the hurry today, and the preoccupation with the Dowdeswell matter, I forgot to tell you that I have had a letter from der Herr Doctor Paulus, Director of the Exhibition in Münich, begging that your two pictures, which he has just seen in Paris, & of which he is wildly enamoured, may be allowed to go on from the Champ de Mars (with other notable works the Frenchmen are sending) to the Münich Exhibition -
Now I have ready for you at once, if you like, [p. 2] "La Dame au brodequin jaune" - (Lady Archibald Campbell) and one of the pictures of the girls by the seaside you know in the dining room here -
What say you? -
I need not tell you how pleased I shall be if you further, in this way, the spreading of our two reputations! -
J McN. Whistler
