110. Rue du Bac. Paris -
Dear Mr Reid -
My notion is that it would be all to the good to let them have the permission they ask for in America -
It will of course also increase the publicity and desire of acquiring the picture for Town - or gallery - etc -
I am afraid that even if I reach London I should be too frozen to attempt a journey to the North - much as I should like to be present at the banquet -
The Little White Girl I have nothing whatever to do with - It belongs to [p. 2] Mr Gerald Potter - who was asking I understand a thousand for it -
Are things in Scotland still bad? -
With my best wishes for the New Year.
J McN. Whistler
