How very kind and nice of you my dear Graham - the good Samaritan was a careless and indifferent person beside you - How could you be so thoughtful! - Just the thing of all others to help me seriously with my work - and make me forever grateful - You really overwhelm me with courtesies - I can't thank you but I shall never forget your friendliness -

With kindest regards to Mrs Graham[3]

Ever Yours

J A McN. Whistler
