Dear Sir,
I thank you for your letter and the kind expression of appreciation and interest you have in my picture. My attention has frequently been called by medical men to what is not doubt an error in the picture: though one or two doctor friends saw it before completion.
Not being now my property it's beyond remedy.
With thanks - I am
Very faithfully yours

Luke Fildes
