My dear Kennedy -

I am very sorry about those etchings & lithographs having to come back and forth in this way because of my forgetting to sign them! - This I will now do at once - but I shall send them back again to London - as I really cannot take the responsibility of posting them in this rolled up state across the ocean - You must do this yourself! -

[p. 2] Did you go to the Grafton Galleries? and how do you think the Lady Meux[3] looks? - .

No rain here yet! It is now sixty days or more and not a drop -

What news have you that is amusing? -

Very Sincerely

J. McN. Whistler
