33. Rue de Tournon - Paris -

Dear Mr Reid -

But a moment to get this off - but I want to acknowledge safe arrival of cheque - and to tell you that I have sent off the three other lithographs to take the place of the ones you do not require -

You will be amused by the long "open letter[4]" to P. O on the covering - and ought to send it to Glasgow Papers.

You should see that they get it in quite correctly though - It could be headed An Open Letter -

In terrible haste

J McN Whistler.
