Dear Jack -
I am going to send you tomorrow your Nocturne in Grey & Gold - with ever so many thanks for it's loan -
The Grosvenor is over and the little picture returns to the walls where it is more cared for -
Do you know I think of running off to the Continong! [sic] the Continong! - and the White House [p. 2] is for the time played out -
If I go to Venice would you like to go in for a Nocturne of the Gondola kind? -
Meanwhile I suppose you would not want to buy any etchings? -
Always, with kindest regards to Mrs. Chapman and Miss Emmie
J A McN. Whistler
