Mr Whistler -

I thought perhaps I was to hear from you about the "White[3]" or some other girl?

I shall be glad to hear from you. I enclose letter received this morning from Newyork [sic].

What shall I reply? Kindly let me know as the gentleman[4] seems "pressé[5]"

Trusting Mrs Whistler[6] & yourself are well & with kindest regards -

Yours faithfully,

Alex Reid.
