I again cannot understand what your difficulty is, and how I fail to make clear to you what I expect!
Certainly upon receipt of my Fridays letter I should not have supposed it possible that this morning could have brought me no answer! - I thought I had been explicit enough, and that you would know that I required a full account today of what you had done about Mr Kennedy etc.
In short the proper reply to my letter - Did you not get it? Has there been some further accident? for I specially requested [p. 2] you to write by Saturday's post
Kindly let me have copy of what you wrote to Mr Kennedy by return - You had better get your letter off by evening, latest post, (but don't miss it) so that if there be a call from Mr. Freer you can give an account - He wishes for a couple of proofs, as I wrote to you - You had better say that you will enquire, as you are not quite clear whether there may be previous engagements. (The same in case of anything of the kind with Mr Kennedy) and then, let me know - You are not to show the little sea piece from Paris - and one little work is to be shown at a time - and then put aside while the next is being looked at -
In the case of Mr Gutekunst I have written to you about the percentage - And by the way you should have told me, with a view to future dealings, if he saw the pictures etc, and if he showed any signs of undertaking any of them - Remember none of them are to be lent, as they were to Mr. Bing, without express permission - I send back the tracings - three of them marked as I best can, The fourth I cannot find at this moment, but believe to be "Return to Tilbury" £6-6-.

Siegfried ('Samuel') Bing (1838-1905), Paris art dealer and specialist in oriental art [more]. The reference to works being 'lent' may explain a reference to work returned in 1897 (see #13034, and #04709).
