Dear Mr Whistler

Your kind present has done Clementine[3] all the good in the World - She wd so much like to see you[.] If you are out Sunday afternoon & if you [p. 2] & Mrs Whistler[4] would come to me about 5 oclock - perhaps, if Clementine felt well enough, you wd run upstairs to her & see her for a few moments

[p. 3] She is getting better I am thankful to say

I am most truly yours

H Blanche Airlie
