Aug. 28. 95

Dear Mr Frick

I have received from Obach ?? the following etchings for you, viz. "Spring" & "Autumn" after Underlined Text Millet Underlined Text Ends -- proofs on vellum £15. each; also a vellum proof of "The Shepherdess" £12, and a Japanese proof of "The Gleaner" £6. It was impossible to get a Vellum proof of "The Gleaners" as they are now so very scarce.

The owner of the picture "The Gleaners" is as ?? as Obach feared, in the country, but if you are going to be in London for another week or so, they would try to communicate with him and you might see the picture. I will call on you as I pass on Friday morning about 9.30 or soon after, when we can talk of this picture & any other matter that you may wish, and a portion of the day will be at your disposal if you want me to call anywhere with you.

Yours truly

Underlined J. W. Beck Underline Ends

H. C. Frick Esq.
