Flossie! Where are you? -
Why were you not all of you at my Private View the other day?
What have I done? -
Have you seen my correspondence with the Times in last Saturdays Pall Mall?
Make George get you the Pall Mall Budget [p. 2] which comes out I believe on thursday, and read 'Mr. Whistler & the Times', where you will find an account of my raid upon Printing House Square! - my sacking the place and carrying off for execution Mr. Buckle and his man Humphrey Ward!! -
Since the days of Stonewall Jackson there is nothing so brilliant - and you are to have no undue tender sympathies with the 'plain person' Hump'h'rey! -
with love to all
