Written in another hand, possibly that of James Anderson Rose (1819-1890), solicitor [more].

See N. Thierry to JW, #08957.

4.  inclosed
Thierry must have sent JW a letter from Theodore Frederick Allingham (b. 1845), solicitor [more] (see #08959). Allingham had tried to pacify Thierry: 'I am making arrangements which will meet all requirements I am sure you could not wish to put Mr Whistler in the meantime to any inconvenience or expence [sic].' He does not seem to have been successful.
