Decem 9 / 92

Dear Whistler,

I expect my letter[2] puzzled you a good deal - I was pleased for the moment because I had got the money in the nick of time for something that was pressing - It was also agreeable to kick that Scot[3], but I lost sight of the fact that he was making off with my purse - Therefore, as you remark, the less said about Yorkshire the better - However, please realise that my hands were tied, so that the kick was all I was able to do - So now, my dear James I hope I hope I have modified to a certain extent the scolding that you have doubtless been meditating.

yrs sincerely

Albert Moore
