My dear Graham Robertson -
I almost venture to believe that I am in the [p. 2] position of one who has not troubled you for a long time! And these Copenhagen Gentlemen are most anxious to see your picture - so that I have promised to use my influence with [you] if I have any! -
Mr Dicksee takes this himself and will attend to all detail concerning insurance etc etc - packing, and the rest of it -
With apologies for disturbing you by this request, and kindest regards
J McNeill Whistler
Come and see me some afternoon at about 4. o'clock -
