Dear Mr Whistler

All right - Wednesday evening without fail but can you make it eight oclock: that is if it is to be a lengthy business for both Mr Brown[2] & Mr Dunn[3] live out of town & some train round eleven oclock is about their last chance of getting home? I don't think that it should take much more than a couple of hours with our system of [p. 2] hanging but I think that it will be useless our arranging them first of all -

I do not think that there is any objection to the Gazette des Beaux Arts[4]. It is an expensive magazine with only a limited sale -

What about the Poster? I shall presume that this is all right.

Shall you want any liquor to sustain you on Wednesday?

Failly yrs
