My dear Mademoiselle Mallarmé

How very kind of you to send me the pretty ribbons! They are charming - I hope that you will - when we are in [p. 2] the Rue du Bac - come, and have tea with me - and let us show you how smart it all looks now - with the new paint,

With kindest regards from my sister[5] and myself to you and your mama[6]

Believe me
Very Sincerely

Beatrix Whistler
