Impressions taken from this plate  (12)
The copper plate has not been located. Although it was a very popular size, common in Whistler's later etchings, it was considerably smaller than most of Whistler's etchings of the 1870s. It is not known how Whistler retained possession of his copper plate at the time of his bankruptcy in 1878.

The plate was cancelled in August 1890. 14
