According to Frederick Wedmore (1844-1921), 'Mr Avery, who owns a proof of this dry-point has a note to the effect that it was 'finished' in October 1872.' 2 An impression owned by Samuel Putnam Avery (1822-1904) is indeed signed 'J. A. McN. Whistler Oct. 13. 1872' () but it is not a final state. He could have signed it at the request of the purchaser, rather than when he printed it.
