My dear Sir
I hasten to correct an error which I made in the letter I sent to you a few days since in reference to the name inscribed on the old monument at Magherafelt, which is, Ralph Whistler, and not, Gabriel, as I thought
Hoping you have 'ere this received my letter in answer to yours
very truly yours

[p. 3] 'Letter from Mr Whistler of Bray,'
The monument was in Magherafelt Parish Church. It bore a gilded armorial shield and was dated A. D. 1657. (see C. K. Irwin to [T. L. Whistler], #02371). See also Charles King Irwin (1837-1915), clergyman [more] to George William Whistler (1822-1869), engineer, JW's half-brother [more], #02372.
Untraced. JW seems to have obtained the name of T. L. Whistler through Thomas Armstrong (1832-1911), artist and Director of Art, South Kensington Museum [more] (see T. Armstrong to JW, #00196).
8. Letter from ... Bray,
Written in another hand. This may be of Joseph Whistler Revillon (1886-1955), JW's great-nephew [more], who bequeathed another letter (C. K. Irwin to [T. L. Whistler], #02372) on this subject to Glasgow University Library).
