My dear Mr Robertson
We were so sorry about Sunday but Jimmie could not get away from the portrait so soon - However it will now soon [p. 2] be finished, and I hope you will give us another chance to have that cup of tea.
I am so glad you think I have brought you luck - - Jimmie thinks I am lucky to him - I should so much like [p. 3] to see the little figure - I am sure it must be charming - I am more pleased than ever with the dedication to your book - Do come on Sunday and write it in for me -
With kind regards from us both -
Capt. Gray Robertson -
