Dear Miss Ohl -

How nice and kind and charming of you! -

And how very flattering the pretty visit of the dainty petite Parisienne who brought [p. 2] me the beautiful flowers herself!

I was so sorry not to see her - She must come with you to the Studio - some evening -

What do you think of this very Saturday? - say at five o'clock -

Or is this too abrupt? and will she have many engagements - as becomes such a mondaine[4] little daughter of the Sacré Coeur!

The drawings of my Missie Cousin[6] are full of go & of the elegance that belongs to [a?] family! -
