THE FINE ART SOCIETY,

8th Mar 81
I laid your letter before my Directors today and they regret that not having received any of the money, save what they handed to you,
that they cannot pay you a larger sum - Directly [p. 2] the Exhibition of the Pastels closes they will get in the money as quickly as possible & hand it over to you -
I therefore return you the check for £149. 12. 6
The Art Journal people cannot spare a man - under these [p. 3] circumstances would it not be as well to get Goulding for a couple of days as Mr Brown says that there are only some score or so of etchings that require printing -
The Directors were asking what had been recouped of the £700 for these plates [p. 4] & I was obliged to say - nothing! as yet -
