Dear Whistler -

Knowing your admirable "taste" (dont scoff) in the matter of tailoring wish I wish you would recommend to me such a firm as you yourself patronize, that I may be "clothed upon" in a way surpassing that of Venetian snippers. I am only asking for the fulfilment [sic] of a promise made years ago.

My felicitations on the enormous success [p. 2] of your book[2]. I have been reading it with delight.

By the bye if you publish another edition look to it that on page 48, 3rd or 4th line, the little word "no" has been inadvertently omitted thereby conveying the opposite sense to that which you intend.

Yours Ever

William Scott:
