Dear Sir,[3]

Referring to the correspondence which has passed between us as to the unfinished Portrait of Lady Meux[4] we should be glad if you would favour us with an appointment as we wished to see you, or if you would prefer it perhaps you would call upon us, and we have no doubt we shall be able to come to a satisfactory arrangement of the matter.

Yours faithfully

Upton & Britton

J. McNeil [sic] Whistler Esq.
