'Mr Whistler, we hear, has in his journeyings in sunny France, not been idle - He brings back with him some forty new etchings of the finest quality. Those who have seen them, in Paris, say that the elegancies of French Renaissance have never been so exquisitely rendered as in their fairy like plates, and the world of connoisseurs and collectors look[s] forward to the printing of these latest proofs of the Master's delicacy, with anxious expectation -' 3
