14 March 1896

This letter[3], I need barely say, in it's imputed phraseology, is quite different to what I did write to him à propos of these two subjects[4], which are not his best, but are among the most sketchy & uninteresting of his lithographs. It is not necessary to particularise further, the latter part of the letter answers itself.

He had a standing offer then from me of £1000/-/- each (his own price) for the full length which was quite complete. Why worry when he could have sold these? It is a curious problem.
