SECOND EXHIBITION, 1899.

DEAR SIR,

The President and the International Art Exhibition Committee are honoured to invite you to contribute your works to the exhibition. The exhibitors are invited after being selected by the committee. The number of works sent will not be restricted; but since space is very limited the Committee, whilst wishing to do justice to the invited artists, cannot promise to display more than one painting, from each exhibitor.

We would request that you indicate the size and type of work that you intend to send when you reply to inform us of your participation. We hope that in light of the importance and the objective of this exhibition you will send your most consequential work.

Accept kind Sir,
The assurance of our perfect consideration.
JAMES McNEIL WHISTLER, President
