Dear Mr Whistler,
[p. 2] As I think you can confiscate this book & in any case stop the sale I send you the information so that you can
wire write or telegraph to Dowell who are respectable people & who in any case would probably withdraw the book if requested.
I leave the matter to you as I have no locus standi to
It will be time enough to write if you post before 4.30, or you could write to me enclosing a note for Dowell & I will write to them, but your personal authority is necessary.
[p. 3] The other things are the usual kind of thing.
I have been as usual greatly pressed at this time of year, but there is very little of interest to tell. The English Art Club opens
soon next week & the works go in to on Monday. No one can send in unless he or she is introduced by two members. I wonder how an announcement of that kind would be received from the Academy. Fancy having to collar two full blown Academicians [p. 4] before the R. A. would even look at a picture - I don't like the principle at all!
I hope you are keeping in good health & remain
Yours very truly
D. C. Thomson
