Dear Mrs. Pennell -

Perhaps this little bit might be thrust as a thorn into the side of the Spielmann[3] -

New honours - from Dresden Gold Medal[4] - to Mr Whistler - who is unanimously elected Hon Member of the Academie Royale des Beaux Arts

I sail on the "Egypt" on the 3rd & so hope to see you all -

With kindest things to you both[5]

J McNeill Whistler
