Dear Mr. Freer,
I have your letter of the 20th ult, enclosing draft for £3250, in payment of “Princess of Porcelain” for which I have to thank you. As you request I have asked my packers to have the picture carefully packed and shall have it sent off in a few days. I am making the carriage forward and shall send you a note of the other expenses.
I note what you say regarding the picture’s ultimate destination and am glad to know it will eventually become National property.
I am very pleased indeed to learn that you found your sister so much better and I hope that in a short time she will be all right again.
With kind regards to yourself,
Believe me,
Yours very truly,
Wm. Burrell

Chas. L. Freer Esq.
