William Webb has written: This sketch is a 'nocturne in grey', a la Whistler. My Christmas will be spent in Auckland, very likely I shall go for a picnic, which is the Christmas fashion here. I hope my absence will be no draw back on the mirth and joy of the company on Christmas Day, because, although I should like to be at home, I know I can't get there and therefore feel rather cheerful., Inscription, Handwritten
