Dear Mr Canfield -
I have had a very bad time since I saw you! - A terrible struggle - with a shocking face & the Dentist!
Yesterday I could not [p. 2] leave my room - and today I have been pursuing Dr Davenport until finally I ran him down in his Country house! and insisted upon an operation in his dining room! -
Of course I am still in a bruised and rather miserable condition - but trust it will be all right tomorrow -
In any case don't go out until you have my wire in the morning!
J McNeill Whistler
