[embossed circular crest with crown:] THE REFORM CLUB

Cher Maitre,

I send you and yours best greetings. I hope that Mrs Whistler[2] is gaining strength and that her people are joyful.

Shall I send Madame Sickert[3] to Rue du Bac[4], or to 86?

And dispatch Sarasate[5] for the time is good - but short.

Que Dieu[6] vous ait dans sa santé et digne garde =

à vous

F G Prange
