Dear Miss Edith -
Entirely Walter Sickert's fault - as usual! -
I shall be delighted to see you this afternoon - and suppose that you come after lunch - so that I shall be ready to paint at 2 o'clock -
Always Sincerely -

She posed intermittently between about 1882 and 1884 for Scherzo in Blue: The Blue Girl (YMSM 226). It was exhibited at 6th Summer Exhibition, Grosvenor Gallery, London, 1882, after which JW continued to work on it right up to 'Notes' - 'Harmonies' - 'Nocturnes', Messrs Dowdeswell, London, 1884. It was never completed and has since disappeared.
