'recd - 12 March 1879'

Herrmans[4] affair


Dear Rose -

I am to have money tomorrow and wish you would send at once to Dod & Longstaff[5] and tell them that tomorrow I will send them £20. on account - and do make terms with them - for time - I am doing my best to pay Herrman - and will send them £15. more next week - I shall come down tonight and see you at the Club[6].

Ever yours

J A McN. Whistler
