Monday 23 Feb 1903

J. McNeill Whistler Esq

Dear Sir

The great assistance I have received from the study of your etchings and drawings which I have seen, and the dear little "Chelsea Bridge"[2] which I am proud to possess, is my apology for the liberty I take of congratulating you on having been offered the highest honour[3] which our University can bestow.

May you be long spared with a new lease of health to enjoy it.

yours sincerely

Tom Maxwell
