110. Rue du Bac -

Dear Sir -

Many thanks for your very courteous and amiable note -

I fear I have been of very little service to Mrs. Lynch[3], though I should have been pleased to have given her any help in my power - Perhaps you will be well enough to attend yourself next Thursday -

[p. 2] Meanwhile I know, by long experience, that no trust whatever may be placed in the head Office of a newspaper and I was sorry that Mrs. Lynch should have been troubled by the brilliancies of her Editor[4]!

It would be nice of you to send me a copy of the Daily Mails[5] report of last week's Court[6] - for I have not as yet seen it -

With best wishes for your speedy recovery,
Very faithfully

J McNeill Whistler

Will you kindly send me Mr Douglas'[7] address?
