Dear Mr. Whistler:

Will you see us, Tuesday at 3 o'c rather than tomorrow? The Duke[3] has to go to the House of Lords Monday afternoon - and [p. 2] besides before we do go to see you we want to get both the fur [Crest?] and the Dress Robes, We could hardly be down tomorrow.

We will then be at your house [p. 3] at 3 o'c Tuesday, unless it should not be convenient for you - in which case, Would you send me a line?

[p. 4] Believe me
Yours very truly

L. Marlborough
