Dear Mr. Burrell -
What are you going to do about lending the Princesse to the Russians?
Don't you think you might? - and still manage to let her afterwards go on to Venise? -
If these things can be managed I should be greatly pleased -
Do write me a line - and believe [p. 2] me,
Very sincerely Yrs
J. McNeill Whistler
