Dear Sir,

With vivid and pleasurable recollections of foregone works of the kind from your hand, I greatly regret that the inexorable laws of time and Space must prevent me from availing myself of your kind invitation to be present at [p. 2] the Private View[2] of your Etchings and Dry Points tomorrow.

Very truly yours

Noël Paton

J. M. Whistler Esqr
