My Dear Whistler

It was very nice of you to come to the A. A. S. A[2] meeting as you did, & I particularly want to thank you about the Gilbert McCaul[3] incident. May I look to you to give us a little sketch, or anything of your handiwork for the Ballot[4].

We hope to have the second list out by Wedy next, so if you can send a reply by return I shall be extremely obliged -

I shall try & call next week, as I want to hear from [p. 2] you the news.

I am more sorry than I can say that affairs have taken the turn they did.

With kind regards
Sincerely your's

W Ayerst Ingram

J. McNiel [sic] Whistler Eqre.

P. S. Please tell me how to describe you - is it Hony Acad. Munich[5]? This I want to go into the list of A. A. S. A. members. Also will you send some etchings to Sydney? Pray do.
