110. Rue du Bac -

My dear Johnstone -

I am so sorry about this - but as I told you, I doubted if I could manage it - and it is impossible!

I should much have liked to have been at your joyous [p. 2] déjeuner - and to have seen again Mr La Farge[3], whom I think charming -

Say to him from me many things -

With regrets, my dear Johnstone
Very Sincerely

J McN. Whistler
