My dear Charlie -

I also was very sorry not to have been able to dine with you all last Sunday - but as I told you I am most hopelessly busy just now - and shall be for the next week - after which I shall pay every attention to your affairs[3] and do my best to see you properly started -

You must therefore simply have the [p. 2] patience that I am obliged to show continually and wait until I am more at liberty to entertain other matters beside those that just now overwhelm me with work.

Always with love
Affecty yours

J McN Whistler
