My dear Whistler,

This is very culpable. I should have written you long ago and given you Mr. Robert McCormick's[3] address, which is as follows: World's Columbian Exposition[4], 72 Victoria St., S. W. - But a fiend of a cold seized me when I returned from Paris and I have been struggling with it ever since. To-morrow I am off to Brighton for a few days to see if sea-air will restore me.

Are you coming to London at this season?

Kindest regards to Mrs. Whistler[5]; & believe me
Yours ever,

Clarence W. McIlvaine
