Shocking bit of paper my dear Publisher and I cannot write [with] this pin!
But you shall have everything next week - So that's all right -
Keep out of queer Company! and all may yet be well
The Ouida letter lovely - !
1. [January 1898?]
The year was inserted in another hand at the top of the sheet. It is possible that JW's promise that Heinemann 'shall have everything next week' relates to the proofs of JW's account of the trial of Eden v Whistler, which he finally won on appeal in December 1897: Whistler, James McNeill, Eden versus Whistler: The Baronet and the Butterfly. A Valentine with a Verdict, Paris and New York, 1899 [GM, A.24].
