Dear Mr. Freer -
How very nice & kind of you in the midst of your haste! -
Yes I am better - and the pain nearly gone! -
You also I am glad to know [p. 2] the Doctor has taken care of -
How wise we both were! -
Never mind the Carlyle[.] You will see him next time -
And do manage to stay that together we may manage something in the studio -
With very best wishes and again Bon voyage
J McNeill Whistler
Tell me how the little Lady Sophie looks on your wall -
