Many thanks my dear Cowan together with apologies for all the trouble I have given in this matter of writing and wiring.
Most excellent then - on Thursday morning - that is tomorrow - say at half past ten - we will "déjeuner" here at 12 o'clock, so don't take anything more than an early cup of tea before you come - for Constant who cooks us our little plats will be greatly disappointed if you have no appetite! -
I can, I think, promise you as good a cup of café noir afterwards, as you used to get at Foyot's. -
With kindest remembrances to the ladies, who I hope will come in the afternoon at about 2 o'clock - or half past,
Always sincerely yours,
J. McNeill Whistler.
