ARTS CLUB,

Dear Mrs Paddon -

What can you think of my silence! -

This is the way of it - I have left Tite Street[4], as I told you I should do - and your very kind [p. 2] note has just been forwarded to my new Studio - 454. Fulham Road - and I am so very sorry that I cannot come to you, as I should have been delighted to do, but I am engaged on Wednesday -

Do ask me again some evening, and also you must come and look at my studio -

It is lovely -

I shall write you a line and ask you to let me give you a cup of tea directly I have unpacked my china -

With kindest regards
Very sincerely Yrs,

J McN. Whistler
