J. M. Whistler Esq.

Dear Mr Whistler,

Excuse me for writing a typewritten letter, but I happen to be very busy just now.

I wrote the enclosed letter to Mr Jeffrey Whitehead[3], & I enclose his reply, so we have attained our object. Will you now write to him, or can I do anything further?

Miss Phillip[4] [sic], I think, wanted to know in what journals your woodcuts appear. Would you please give her the enclosed list.

Hoping you are feeling better.

I am,
Yours sincerely,

Ernest G. Brown.
