PARK LANE. W.
I shall be delighted to see my brisk and "mobile" Apprentice - in the midst of her rapid marches - to-morrow at 5. o'clock -
Why not take a peep at the Royal Academy! - also a side glance at a certain portrait of a child in red legs - the New Gallery - beside which even Miss Cecelia your friend becomes mild & modest! -
Perhaps afterwards it might be not dangerous to call [p. 2] in at the Fine Art Society, Bond Street - and say that they are to show you a little head of the "Pretty Nellie Brown" - also in red -
Better, upon second thought, come to me first in the morning at about 10.30! and arrange afterwards for the day -
