Paris -

You are quite right, dear Mrs Crowe, I have not at all forgotten you or your sisters and all your charming kindnesses - and I am very greatly pleased that you remember me and have written me such a pretty letter - It has been forwarded to me over here -

Of course you must go to my pictures - and of course you must not go like any body else! -

Also you must make my compliments to your daughter, who must be delightful if she is like her Mother, and beg her to go with you -

When we come back, you must all [p. 2] come and see us - that you may know my wife[3] who is charming and whom you will be delighted with -

With kindest and most affectionate regards to you all
Always Sincerely

J McNeill Whistler
