Dear Mr. Burrell -

What are you going to do about lending the Princesse[2] 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
