All four items in fair condition, on lightly-aged paper. All written in Murray's distinctive wavy hand. Letter One: 15 December 1898. 3pp., 12mo. He begins by asking Mann to 'send the proceeds for the enclosed cheque into the proper hands to discharge my debt for the pencils'. He 'had to run down by night mail on Sunday night & back on Monday night, to attend the funeral of my dear old friend James Muir who died after a very short illness'. He expresses sympathy for 'Poor Brough'. 'Michie' (Scottish painter James Coutts Michie) is 'truly as ever & so far as he is concerned they may sink Havana he is proof against all temptations. He is still human, so far as stimulating beverages are concerned.' Letter Two: 6 November 1899. 3pp., 12mo. 'I was, as you will understand, very sorry to learn from Whyte that you were gone from the Grand. I did not look forward with pleasure to returning there had I known of any other place suitable I think I should have changed, but Grieve proved very kind indeed, & did his best to make the house to me what it was with yourself & Mrs. Mann there. When Whyte told me the Circumstances of the change I immediately thought of the picture I promised you'. Letter Three: From the Old Red Lion Hotel. 11 September 1901. 3pp., 12mo. He congratulates Mann on his becoming a grandfather, and discusses his family. Note: 3 February 1905. 'My dear Mann, | One word of message but writ large. [last two words underlined] | My Warmest Thanks to you | Very gratefully yours | [signed] David Murray'. N° de ref. de la librería 12137
