Dear Jimmie

it is rather late in the day, to say that I am answering in haste to your note, but so it is, for I am taking the first opportunity of doing it. But I dare say you have heard through Goupil[3] that the "Music Room[4]" has been sent as you desired.

[p. 2] My babies have been ill which has taken up all my time, otherwise I should have answered your charming little note sooner. Of course you have seen Neva & Ross[5] who have been in Paris all winter, but who unfortunately have had illness to prevent them enjoying it as they otherwise would have done.

[p. 3] I hope the Show will be a great success in every way, & I wish I was going to see it. You must give my kindest regards to your wife[6], who I have not yet had the pleasure of meeting, but I hope it will not be long now [until][7] I do.

Believe me as [always]
Affectly y[ours]

Julia [Revillon]
