My dear Heinemann -
Awful weather! awful! awful! -
It was very nice of you to wish for me on the night [of] Irving's appearance - and my abrupt telegram could give you no idea of my appreciation -
You will have a lot to tell me about it when I get back - though had I been with you last night - or rather now that I think, it is to-night, isn't it? - well if I were there I don't think I should go - For my dear friend I feel only more and more forlorn as I go on! -
Indeed I have scarcely the wish to be other - You can fancy what it was for me to come back here.....alone!
Well - you have been very nice to me - I think I shall come back to you at first. But I mustn't become an anxiety - not to say gloomy fatigue!! -
Perhaps I may really cross tomorrow if possible -
Is Landor with you? - Many things to him, and with kindest regards,
J. McN. Whistler.
