Dear Sir -
The falling Rocket - All right - you did your best - and your best is always very perfect - Now if by any chance you were to hear from the P. P.s again, mind the picture goes right up to the thousand - You must say no! that their opportunity was gone - they had missed it and that's over! -
Album - These last photographs are charming - only the Orchar has still got the white blemish - However you will come over I hope this week - and I am sorry to hear the cause of your delay hitherto -
Business - It would be interesting to hear what the Sir W. Edens say to coming over for their portrait.
Richards . I want my small pictures that you gave him to clean and varnish - You know the ones I mean - the sketches that used to hang in the dining room, Cheyne Walk - I wrote you about them - [p. 2] Do kindly get them off to me at once - tomorrow? You remember also that I told you to let Richards wash the large Cremorne Nocturne (that was brought to the Gallery but not exhibited) and take off any varnish, if he found any - and then send it to me without revarnishing so that I might paint upon it - This had better come too - Couldn't you get them all off now, to Joyant's? and let me know -
Peacock Room - Do send me at once the Pall Mall Budget with reproduction of the "Princesse" etc - - also send me fine proof of Photo from the Picture - You understand that I want the Peacock Album to be a success - I don't quite make out what the Pall Mall is doing in it at all? -
Mrs. Leyland - I will see to this -
Mr. Potter - Has he not paid for his frames?
Kindly give me once more names of who have paid frames, & who have refused.
J McN. Whistler
