My dear Deschamps -
I wonder if you could come down to me tomorrow - if not too much engaged - some where about half past two or three - I am off on Monday morning early - to be away for a week or ten days - and should like to see you before I leave - not anything very particular - [p. 2] but still perhaps a thing or two to say that one might remember in talking but that one can hardly think of in writing.
Also I am finishing a screen that I will only have this chance of showing you - and I have an idea that "something is to be done" - about which we might 'dodge a means' - etc. - ! However come and see - Also [p. 3] if it so 'arranges itself' bring the foreign swell - If it be more convenient - look in on Sunday morning at about one o'clock - but as I tell you, Monday morning I am off -
Come tomorrow though if you can -
J A McN Whistler.

Could you possibly have a proof from Parsons to bring with you? -
