ADDRESS TELEGRAMS / "SAVOYARD, LONDON."

Oct 16 1886

Dear Mr Whistler

I have just returned from Germany - I did not go to Berlin but wrote to Mr Rennell Rodd[2] as you wished - but I really think a line from you[3] would be worth a hundred from me - however - as you wish!

I enclose in this a few American cuttings (which [p. 2] kindly return as usual) - I also send a note from Frank Moseman[4] (our clerk in New York) which you may like to look at

When will you come & see me?

The cabled letter[5] is simply perfect - "how did you do it?"

ever yours

Helen Lenoir
