My dear Mr. Whistler;
After leaving India I continued my travels eastward, by easy stages, stopping four months in bewitching Japan, and finally reached home a few days ago in perfect [p. 2] health and charmed with the experiences of my trip - Your kindness to me during my stay in Paris is one of my most delightful memories -
How are you all? Mrs. Whistler has quite recovered her health, I trust, I thought of her often during my journeying and if good wishes count [p. 3] her illness must have long since departed - Are you nearly ready to make us a visit? I hope so -
Detroit is a port of entry and they can be shipped direct to my house address - The safer way would [p. 4] be in care of American Express Co. from New York city - Please let transportation and any other charges including American consular certificate follow -
With warmest personal regards to you all
most faithfully yours,
Charles L. Freer,
U. S. A.
When you see MacMonies kindly give him my cordial greetings -
C. L. F.
