Dear Mrs. Pennell,
I send you the present "Marie" to tell you how sorry I am about this evening!
But I dare not . . and the regrets too of my sister in law I enclose - [p. 2] for she also is not well enough to come out at night -
But next time!
& a bientot -
Mrs. Joseph Pennell.

The paper has a mourning border, indicating a date after the death of William McNeill Whistler (1836-1900), physician, JW's brother [more]. The envelope was sent by hand and has no postmark. The reference to 'Marie' suggests the date of November 1901 (see below).
Marie, servant of JW and R. Birnie Philip; Marie, a Belgian servant hired by JW in London, had been fired in April or May 1899.
