TO H. R. H. THE PRINCE OF WALES.
Dear Mr Whistler,
Without at all wishing to bother you again about the Glasgow customer, I thought I would send you the enclosed letter I have just had from him. I thought you could write me a little note telling me finally that you will not lend any more drawings and that would end the matter. I should of course send your letter to him.
Hope your hand is better (?)
Yours very truly
Ernest G. Brown.

This may relate to an incident during JW's stay at Wortley Hall, near Sheffield, home of Susan Charlotte Granville (1834-1927), née Lascelles, wife of E. M. S. G. Stuart-Wortley [more], and Edward Montagu Stuart Granville Stuart-Wortley (1827-1899), 1st Earl of Wharncliffe [more]. According to a draft letter to Lady Wharncliffe, he tumbled over a stile into a meadow, straining his wrist (see #06005).
