Dear Mr Mansfield:
I think the little photograph of the etchings most dainty.
It was nice of you to send it.
The charming arrangement of the prints is due, I know, to your own perfect taste - and I thank you for making such a brave show for me!
Your announcement of the gold medals & my honours is of course greatly appreciated by me, and I am very sensible of the distinctions.
Do say many kind things to Mrs. Mansfield and Miss Margaret for me - and I hope I shall see you all here again this summer.
Always, Sincerely yours
J. McNeill Whistler
