Dear Mr. Whistler,

Just a brief note to say that I expect to sail on 4th May & go straight to Stuttgart. Perhaps on my way, if I make good time, I may be able to see you, but I doubt it. However I will drop in on my way back.

A man named Eddy[3] in Chicago I find, was able to get the painting[4] & the little water Colour[5].

Like Dick Deadeye[6] he means well but he don't know. Alas, alas!

I hope Mrs. Whistler[7] is all right again.

Yours Sincerely (in haste)

E. G. Kennedy.
