Whistler, James Abbott McNeill, American painter and etcher (1834-1903). Autograph letter signed ("J. A. M. Whistler").

"9 Lindsey Row, Old Battersea Bridge, Chelsea, Saturday", no year.

8vo. 2¼ pp. on bifolium.


To Ernest Brown: "I have just got your letter and am sorry about Tuesday's dinner coming to grief - I haste now to write and tell you that being judged sufficiently recovered by my brother, I am to go down and meet my Mother in the country and bring her back on Monday morning [...]".

Whistler goes on to discuss plans and is very desirous of "showing you what I am about", etc.

A nice letter with much cirtuitious meandering in trying to establish a meeting.
