Dear Mr Gilder
I send you the Keene. Mss.
Of Course you will arrange all details of the publication with [Zumin?].
I've shown the that [sic] article on Whistler at West [p. 2] Point to the Subject of it. He says it wants editing. I think as he now has the Mss. if you would write him
110 Rue du Bac
he might make the [p. 3] changes himself. He dont [sic] like it as it is, but he dont object, I think to the idea of the article.
1. [September 1897]
Dated from the reference to the Keene manuscript (see below).
4. Keene Mss
This was probably for the article, Joseph Pennell, 'The Art of Charles Keene', Century Magazine, vol. 54, no. 6, October 1897, pp. 823-30.
Gustav Kobbé (1857-1918), writer on music and art [more], wrote several articles relating to JW including Kobbé, Gustave, 'Whistler at West Point,' The Chap Book, VIII, no. 11, 15 April 1898, pp. 439-42 [GM, K.23]. Although Kobbé was a regular contributor to the Century, the article does not seem to have been published there. A draft of it is at #02437. According to E. R. Pennell JW did not object to the idea of the article, but the way it was done (see E. R. Pennell to R. U. Johnson, 21 December 1897, #08194).
