J. McNeill Whistler Esq
The great assistance I have received from the study of your etchings and drawings which I have seen, and the dear little "Chelsea Bridge" which I am proud to possess, is my apology for the liberty I take of congratulating you on having been offered the highest honour which our University can bestow.
May you be long spared with a new lease of health to enjoy it.
Honorary degree of Doctor of Laws from the University of Glasgow was awarded in April 1903.
