My dear Whistler
Yes but Chapman's "Golden Witch" - an admirable picture - seems to me cribbed from Sandys' "Medea". Or they must have had the same model. Or, the principle of "natural inheritance" has again been vindicated; and the liniaments [sic] of Medea who flourished ever so many thousand years ago, reappear in this Golden Bitch of I suppose a mediaeval period. Never mind: I shall slaughter the picture on Monday. The d_d elections have kept me away from all pictures for some time.
Will you come and dine with me here next Friday at seven o'clock. I will ask Sandys.
