Dear Mr Whistler,

You will be glad to know that I arrived here safely after a rough passage from Liverpool.

A friend, Mr F. Purnell[2], who leaves for London to-morrow will deliver to you a bottle of "mixed delight[3]", you know I promised to duplicate the bottle I took over. I am only sorry I cannot take it myself, under my arm. However, I hope to see you again before a great while. Unfortunately the "Axenfeld"[4] and "Annie Haden"[5], from the Macgeorge[6] Collection of etchings have been [p. 2][7] promised on this side. I'm sorry about this as I would like you to have them.

Hoping you are continuing to improve in health, and with my compliments to Miss Philip[8], I am,

dear Mr Whistler,
yours faithfully,

D. A. Kennedy.
