Dear Lord Houghton -

I am very sorry indeed to lose you as a guest this morning and sorry for the cause - but I trust the indisposition will pass away more quickly than my disappointment which began with Miss Milnes'[3] being unable to come, and [p. 2] is now quite completed -

I must persuade you again -

Very sincerely Yrs

J A McN. Whistler
