Dear Mr. Whistler
I beg to return your etchings which with your note arrived a few moments ago causing me no little surprise. The only explanation I can imagine is that yesterday being the 1st of April some one has taken the liberty of playing a practical joke of which I have had the benefit [p. 2] and you the trouble.
I certainly never addressed a note to you, and I think I am the only Mrs Horne Payne in London. We are going out of town I think on Saturday or I would avail myself of the knowledge of your being at your studio, to call and enquire if any light had been thrown on this [p. 3] mysterious affair.
With very kind regards I am dear Mr Whistler
