Dear Miss Phillip [sic]
The very sad news of dear Mr Whistlers death has just reached me today.
My wife and I wish to send you our deepest sympathy.
I am sure all Mr Whistlers friends must feel great sympathy with one who has been so devoted to him as you have during his sufferings and has been such a great confort [sic] to him, as he required much gentle sympathy.
I feel most keenly the very sad loss of one so great and noble - courageous always - upholding right - and never failing from the highest standard - This was not understood by all but those that knew it will ever uphold it to his memory
With kindest regards
yours very sincerely
E. A. Walton.
