52. RUE DE BASSANO
I gr[e]atly regret to hear Mr Whistler is prevented being our guest tonight; & still more so, that it is by the doctor's orders.
I write now, to beg he will not trouble to expose himself to the inclement weather; by [p. 2] coming to see me, as I leave for St Petersbourg [sic] shortly, & have a great deal to do before my departure, but trust his visit is only a pleasure postponed. I hope Mr Whistler will soon be better again; for the health of such a great man is precious to all mankind.
With kind regards,
Very sincerely yrs
110 Rue du Bac.
