Dear Mr Canfield -

This is all most nice of you - and I propose that you come then to-morrow direct to the studio say at 3 o'clock - if no engagement prevent you. We had better take advantage of this tolerable weather - and I beg you will not trouble to answer unless I am not to expect you -

very sincerely

J. McNeill Whistler.
