Dear Mr Blott -

I have not heard from you at all in answer to my last letter[3] asking if you would appoint your own morning to breakfast with me - The Chelsea post has of late been more than once remiss and perhaps your note[4] may have miscarried - Would you like to fix any morning next week if you happen to be engaged for [p. 2] the next few days -

Very Sincerely Yours

J A McN. Whistler
