King William Street,
Strand, W. C.
My dear Baddeley -
I am awfully sorry that I am unable to accept your kind invitation for Saturday next - but I had already engaged myself to the Probyns.
Yesterday I meant to have called upon you on my way to [Tite] Street - but was prevented - otherwise this note should have been written then -
With very many thanks
J. McN. Whistler
Typescript copy on a 'press release' letter of an original letter sold at Smith Sale, Anderson Galleries, New York, c. 19 April 1921, lot 374. The item was referred to as '2 pages (1 sheet) 12mo.'
This address would probably have been printed on the original note.
A blank space was left in the typescript copy, but 'Tite' Street, being JW's address, may have been the word used in the original.
