Dear Mr Whistler.
I left Paris last Monday morning but being in London a week got your wire & Mrs Whistlers letters only this morning. I shall of course do everything in my power to make the "Whistler Exhibit" a success. & shall await hearing from the Secretary.
I am impatient about the "Fur Jacket" & trust you have instructed the Munich people to send it me direct as soon as the Exhibition is closed.
They are to be in Paris in a few days & wanted your address, which I was able to give him.
With kind regards to Mrs Whistler et sa soeur.
Tell Mrs Whistler I wandered up & down Great Portland St in a drizzling rain searching in vain for the maker of those curtains, "but no such animal the meadows cropped."
