Whistler wrote out a menu every morning - these he treasured as if they were drawings - sometimes as a special favour he would present a distinguished guest with one, make a note of it, and place it in the Japanese Cabinet where he kept the whole collection - CAH -
The menu, written in French, consisted of oyster soup, roast chicken, celery salad, and apple pudding.
