My dear Major Hamilton -

I wish to apologise for my almost inexcusable intrusion this morning. - Such indiscretions only happen to that most irrational of beings, the "early riser"! - an erratic creature, capable of all possible errors - and, apparently, among others, of that of supposing himself welcome in strange places at odd hours! -

[p. 2] Pray accept my regrets - and my assurances that no such unseemly irruption is again contemplated by

Yours very truly

J. A. MacNeill. Whistler -
