'To Carr - re invitation G Gallery'
Is this the way you play
my dear Jo! Jo! -
For years have I served you! - Have I not been behind every door in the Gallery - and out upon the staircase - waiting always patiently [p. 2] for rehabilitation until the next years Salon?
, for rehabilitation - And now you pass the pen of ingratitude through my name on the list of your Grosvenor Guests - fi donc! -

4. To Carr - re invitation G Gallery
Written by Beatrix Whistler (1857-1896), née Beatrice Philip, artist [more]. She seems to have taken charge of JW's filing system. 'G Gallery' means the Grosvenor Gallery, where JW exhibited frequently after its opening in 1876 until 1884.
