Dear Mr Whistler,
I was sorry to be out when you called the other day I should like to have had a chat with you about various things.
I like your New Gallery picture immensely
I think you wanted me to let you know how many etchings were due to complete the Venice Set. The numbers are these: -
[p. 2] I have all the dates of delivery. I hope you will be able to do them soon or else the Board will be the agrieved party in the matter of these Venice etchings! You know you've got the printing press (once ours) and I can get Seymour Haden to let you have some more old Dutch paper!
I have just heard of a very fine house, called I think "The White House" at Ruan Minor, Cornwall if you still think of going there.
With kind regards
Ernest G. Brown.
