It was very kind of you to write me such a very nice letter about the exhibition
I was very interested to know all about it.
The cuttings have been very amusing [p. 2] especially the provincial papers, I think there can be no doubt that it has been a triumph all round -
Mr Whistler hopes you will write to him every day - your letter is the one he looks forward to -
