Dear Mr. Thomson -
I have a little picture for Bailie Cochrane - of Glasgow - but I dont remember his address - nor his proper name and title -
Would you send it to me? - tomorrow -
He was one of the Committee of the Glasgow Galleries who purchased the Carlyle -
[p. 2] Should I address the envelope when I write to him: Bailie Cochrane?
I promised long ago to paint him something - and I am just thinking that perhaps this might please him -
If you like to make an offer for it - since you do make offers - you might perhaps have it and I could do something else for the Bailie -
Go and see my "Crimson Note" at the New Gallery -
We may do business yet!
That Cottage you know is worth a jolly [p. 3] little sum - and will be worth more! -
They will buy it like a shot in America!
So they will that head -
D. C. Thomson Esq.
