My dear Mr Graham Robertson -
Now this time I do want you very much to lend your pictures -
You must acknowledge that I have not troubled you for years - and I quite admited [sic] all that you said about the Chicago business.
But this is for Antwerp - There is to be, as I daresay you know, a [p. 2] great International affair there this May - and I have been specially invited - and I would, of all things, so much like to be represented by the Rosa Corder & your Pacific.
They would make a splendid show for both of us! - and you should be at peace afterwards for ages - I promise you -
Write me a line to say that they shall go and I will send all further details -
Besides I will find you something else to take their place while they are away - -
How is it you never come to Paris? - This I take for granted as you have never been to see us.
How did you like the seapieces I sent to the Grafton? -
With kindest regards and remembrances from us both to your Mother & yourself
J. McNeill Whistler
[p. 2] Mind you this Antwerp Exhibition is most important - or I wouldn't persist in this way -
It means a good deal to me!
Graham Robertson. Esq
