Dear Mr. Whistler
What bad luck, & what good luck!
The first that I should lose your visits (yours & Madame's) this afternoon -
The second that I become possessor [p. 2] of the "Vers et Prose" with that wonderful portrait! How kind of you - I am wholly as grateful & appreciative as you are charming to me -
When can we find you? I want to bring you the cheque & get my picture - Both have to be signed, you know!
Isabella S. Gardner
