Dear Mr McCorkindale -

I have received the cheque all right - and was sorry you should have had this double trouble about it -

I shall be very glad to see you when you come again to Paris - and show you what I have been about at the studio -

[p. 2] The "firewheel" picture[3] though is at Antwerp, and will not come away from there for several months yet I believe -

With kindest regards,
Very sincerely yours

J. McNeill Whistler.

Kindly remember me to Mr Lawson[4] when you see him -
