Dear Mr Whistler
I have not written because there was nothing to write about the Knightsbridge show -
It is Gilbert's and Melville's idea that no pictures should [p. 3] be submitted. While we are all agreed that very few should be shown some of us feel that it would be better to alow artist[s] who are not invited to submit their work. We think some of the names on the Committee sufficient attraction.
We have only £500 to cover carriage, insurance [p. 4] etc:
If you would send your views to the Friday meeting it would get us out of our difficulty
