Notes:

1.  [9 August 1883]
The list dates from 25 January to 9 August 1883, but presumably reflects the settlement of JW's account on the latter date.

2.  The Fine Art Society

3.  ADS
This list records the sale of etchings, chiefly from Mr Whistler's Etchings of Venice, 1880 (the first 'Venice Set') (K. 183-189, 191-195). (excat 5). The two pages are facing one another in a ledger.

4.  One proof
Most of the items in this column (on both pages) have either a line or cross drawn through them, by JW, in red ink. Other aspects of the list are in red ink, including the words 'payed Aug 9' in the far right column, and the entry on p. 2 for 'July 16 - ... £26. 5 - 0'.
