Dear Mrs. Pennell -
What is your wonderful system of police? and how could you know that I had called when I saw no one? ! -
Of course I shall be delighted to come on Thursday if this terrible weather does not make it impossible!
I cannot expect [p. 2] my doctor to forgive me if I take cold again!! -
and I cannot propose to spoil your dinner table by any such uncertainty - Still?
I did not see the articles in the "Sun" of Sunday! -
and think it would be nice of you to tell me what it was all about? -
Is this so? - -
Dear Mrs. Pennell do forgive me - I am so tired after my day's work that this must go in its present incoherent condition! -
J. McNeill Whistler -
