Dear Mr Whistler
I see from the papers here that the Corporation are after all going to let you have the Carlyle for Chicago.
I am glad to hear it[.] What I write about spe[c]ially is to see if you can let me know the exact date of the opening of the "Champ de Mars" - The private view day, also if one could have tickets. They are for two young ladies whose portraits (by Guthrie) are to be there
By kindly letting me have this information by return & regretting having to trouble you
