Dear Mr. Whistler,
I write this little note out of a good spirit to tell you that even my Uncle is beginning to be impressed with the portrait; he remarked to me when he returned from his last sitting "that he really couldn't help [p. 2] observing that it was going to be very like him, and that there was a certain massive originality about the whole thing, which was rather impressive! - "
Will you please give my love to Mrs. Whistler, whom I hope to see very soon.
I am, with kind regards,
Yours very sincerely
Mary Carlyle Aitken
