Mr. E Quayle
In reply to your letter of 23rd, I have been instructed to forward you
for painting, two 3 ply boards as sample pictures each are to be
seascapes. There are 20 pictures wanted being twelve for smoking
room for which we are willing to pay 40/- (shillings) each and 8 for
dining saloon for which we are willing to pay 25/- (shillings) each.
Will you therefore paint one of each for the above price.
You will (note?) a line

success of these, they are for two passenger steamers we are building
for a Peruvian company for S. American waters. Pictures are to be
