We dare say that Mr. Webb has already informed you that the Partnership (if any) which existed between Mr. Vivian & Mr. Erskine has been dissolved, & that a notice of the Dissolution appears in the Gazette of the 14th ult., & that Mr. Erskine is no longer liable for debts incurred in connection with the "Whirlwind". You will no doubt have heard from Mr. Webb that we have received authority to raise money for the payment of the debts [p. 2] previous to the Dissolution.
We are, dear Sir,
Cookson & Co

The Whirlwind: A Lively and Eccentric Newspaper, was a literary and radical journal that had ceased publication after a very brief period. It is not clear to what extent JW was financially involved, but he had contributed lithographs for publication, and probably not been paid. The Winged Hat (C.34), The Tyresmith (C.36) and Maunder's Fish Shop, Chelsea (C.37) were published in October, November and December 1890.
