Dear Sir

We are sending you today through our Paris house 10 more sets of the Photographs[3] for your signature and we expect to be able to send you some more sets in the beginning of the week which will likely arrive before you have [p. 2] finished those we send you now. At the same time we send you a photograph of "The Ocean[4]" which was omitted but belongs to one of the sets you have already signed. Kindly sign it and return it with the sets when ready.

Yours faithfully
pp Boussod Valadon & Co

J. McNeil [sic] Whistler Esq.

May we send for the Pastel[5]?
