My dear Whistler,

One thousand thanks. You will see that you have not laboured in vain.

And look at Haden[2] in the new Nineteenth Century[3]. The affair must go on, I think. It cannot stop where it is.

Will this do? Let me hear your views, & it shall appear next week if you will.

I am full three-quarters dished, done up, dead.

[Always?] Sincerely Yours,

W. E. Henley
