My dear friend,
I have given notice at Terminus that the letter is to go to you, if it comes there. As I wrote last night, the cheque is of no use to me, so please destroy it.
A registered letter in France is not delivered unless to the person to whom it is addressed. I think this is so every where, & in order that one may be on hand when it arrives, a notice should accompany it, as it must [p. 2] be signed for by the person to whom it is sent.
I said, I think, in my letter, to wait until I saw you, however, it makes no difference, only I'm sorry you should have taken the trouble.
As to your letter of the 5th June, you will very easily see how the misapprehension occurred when you see it in London. It is too long a tale to write, as my cab goes in a few minutes. Perhaps we may hit it off on something else when you come to London. When I arrive, I will write to you.
E. G. Kennedy.
J. McNeil Whistler Esq.
5. letter from Vienna
JW sent a number of works to the 1st International Exhibition, Vereinigung Bildender Kϋnstler, Vienna, 1898, including Harmony in Grey and Green: Miss Cicely Alexander (YMSM 129) and Brown and Gold (YMSM 440). It appears that there was some delay in returning works.
