Dear Mrs Dawkins -
I am so very very sorry about the dinner! -
How charming it would have been - and how kind & nice of you to ask me! -
But of course it will only be quite sad without me! -
I am to dine [p. 2] in Wilton Street - Don't send them all away too early - and do let me come in afterwards at about half past ten -
Always very devotedly
J McN Whistler -
Why did you not come to my last Sunday tea?
Dated by writing and possible reference to Fanny M. Du Quaire (see below).

Perhaps at the home of Fanny M. Du Quaire, collector, a social acquaintance of JW [more], who lived at 14 Wilton Street, Grosvenor Place, in the 1880s (see F. M. Du Quaire to JW, #00977).
