[circular crest with rose and crown:] THE REFORM CLUB[2]

Dear Whistler,

I see that you are "particeps [ominus?]"[3] towards getting up an Exhibition on the lines which I proposed at the Grafton[4].

You know that this place (Grafton not Reform[)] has been turned into a Toffee & Coffee Shop -

Now could I do something in the new venture?

I am free till [p. 2] August & who knows the Continent & its Illustrators & its language better than

yr old friend
