'March. 95.[3]'

My dear Mr. Whistler.

The winter has been so cold that Mrs. Peck[4] has been unable to return to Paris until now, and she would like very much to hear from you, at your earliest convenience, [p. 2] whether you are still willing to paint a portrait of her daughter[5] for the sum of two thousand dollars, and if so, how soon you will be able to give the first sitting.

Yours truly -

L. C. Kellogg.

[p. 3] Tuesday March Twelfth -

Mrs. Harold S. Peck.
