THE WHITE HOUSE,
Dear Knowles -
I do wish you had turned up yesterday, and I half thought you would - however it was too horrid outside of course for any such journey -
You would have found plenty of friends though - and very charming they all were -
The etching was a great success - I hope [p. 2] you will like it for I look upon it as my finest - and pick you out and send herewith a beauty - printed by myself -
Look at the grand old piece of Dutch paper! isn't it a famous proof! -
Forgive my warmth -
J A McN. Whistler
Come round some day soon - of course when this wind has blown itself out - and have a cup of tea in the studio -
