Dear Mrs Addams.
I am writing again a little line, to say, will you either write or wire to this address, 8 Fitzroy Street. W., when we may expect Carmen.
Mr Whistler supposes she will be coming by the Dieppe way and hopes she will arrive either Friday or Saturday
[p. 2] We wonder whether Mr Rossi will come with her, not that we in any way desire him, and "he" thinks that you might "observe", & if you see any indication of such intention, you might let him know at once.
With kindest regards.
Very sincerely yours.
Envelope:Mrs Clifford Addams.

Carmen Rossi, model, proprietess of the Académie Carmen [more]. JW suspected that Carmen had been pilfering works from his studio and had arranged with Addams for her to be sent over to London to see him. See JW to I. Addams, #00091, #04817.
