My dear Whistler,
In addition to the Gentle Art of Making Enemies, you must be credited with the yet more Subtle Art of Making Friends -
When I returned home from a brief holiday, I felt, at finding your book awaiting me, a sense of pleasure as if from the presence of a welcome friend -
I shall treasure the book for its own sake and for that of its Author and giver -
[p. 2] With kindest regards, also to Mrs Whistler, believe me to be
Ever Sincerely Yours.
