4, WHITEHALL COURT,
Dear Mr Browne [sic] -
Just a line to say that those two particular little pictures are gone - I mean the girl on the sofa - and the little shop with the old woman & child in the door way -
I am off to the sea side for a few days - and perhaps may bring back something, & will let you have a peep!
J McN. Whistler
1. [September/December 1896?]
Dated from the address - JW stayed with William Heinemann (1863-1920), publisher [more], for some months after the death (on 10 May) of Beatrix Whistler (1857-1896), née Beatrice Philip, artist [more] (the letter is written at right angles to the printed address). JW's reference to the 'sea side' may indicate his trip (in mid- to late September) to northern France.
