My dear Miss Reubell -

Trixie[3] is not very well this afternoon and is lying down - She bids me write and tell you that the breakfast for to-morrow has sadly come to grief! Mr Clark[4] cannot come, and it is very uncertain about Dr Herbert[5] - Therefore we want you to come next Sunday (the 28th) instead.

Do manage this, and we will get together a party worthy for the occasion.

I called the other afternoon - but you were out - There are now such a lot of things to talk about! we must see you soon! -

With kindest regards from both,
Always sincerely

J. McN. Whistler
