Dear Mr. Thomson -

I wish you would give my servant[3] one of the new frames you have just just now had made - The one for the Church[4] would I think be right -

I am to send off now a little picture[5] of the same size and the frame is really not in a good enough condition - But [p. 2] I will let you have it in the meantime until you can again get another -

Very faithfully

J McN Whistler
