Dear Willie -

Walter[3] tells me that you want the paint on Monday - This will be much better for me - so instead of coming tomorrow morning I will arrange with you all about it when you come down to me in the afternoon -

[p. 2] Tell Nellie[4] you are all to be at the studio by 4. o'clock - Don't be much earlier as I shall be still working -

Also don't be later for we want day light -

Always -
