Friday eveg -

Dear Miss Hallowell -

I hope that your servant this morning understood that I shall be delighted to see you and Mrs. Potter Palmer[3] at the studio (86. Rue Notre Dame des Champs) on Sunday -

Perhaps, as the days are so short, it would be well to get there by half past two - I shall in any case be there a little [p. 2] before then - and you can come as soon as it is convenient to you both -

Believe me, with kindest regards
Very Sincerely Yours

J McN. Whistler
