How very kind of you, dear Mrs Jay - I shall come to you with great pleasure - and as you give me the choice, on Thursday, if I may -
Only I trust you will forgive me if I am a little late -
The days are getting longer - and one gets so lost in one's work that unconsciously six o'clock goes before one has thought of leaving the studio.
With kindest regards to yourself and your husband
J. McNeill Whistler
1. [March 1897/1900?]
Since there is no reference to JW's wife, this presumably dates from after her death in 1896; the reference to daylight suggests that it is Spring.
