My dear Whitman -

How very nice and kind of you to send me the cutting from the German newspaper[4] -

It is quite new to me in every sense of the word - and I am almost as well pleased with the article as I am with your charming thoughtfulness -

Anything else [p. 2] you come upon while abroad I wish enough you would send on -

With kindest regards and best thanks,
Always sincerely

J McN. Whistler
