Dear Sir -
The Catalogue is perfect - I am highly pleased - But - unfortunately, because now too late, there are still the following errors.
First page. Kindly lent ( ) their owners.
Page 28. Hall and Park - The
y printer for whom you had corrected this three times, still refuses to put Holland Park -
Page 29. The para under Moral, should have been signed Illustrated London News.
What can be done? and how soon can [p. 2] this be put right? especially this last - This is the most important - for at present with the butterfly, it looks like a comment of my own!! -
J McN. Whistler.
The most important matter and above all, is to see that by no accident or disaster any of the first printed batch of 250 erroneous copies get out - I shall come down to you in the morning, and we will destroy that lot together - Then only will I feel at my ease -
