Double-underlined and written (in pencil) in the hand of JW, in top left-hand corner of sheet. He seems to have numbered his correspondence with Leyland over Harmony in Blue and Gold: The Peacock Room (YMSM 178) with a view to publication, although this did not take place.
The dining room at 49, Prince's Gate, F. R. Leyland's London home. JW worked through the summer months on a decorative scheme for the room, Harmony in Blue and Gold: The Peacock Room (YMSM 178). He received an initial advance payment of £250 and a further advance of £150 from Leyland (see JW to F. R. Leyland, #11866, #02574). In his telegram (see note above), JW had asked for an additional £200.
