Are you at all aware, my dear preoccupied Mr. Secretary, that you have never sent me the sheet of prepared paper upon which to write? -
Also I have of course no longer the size of the page - or in short any guide in the matter! -
The pictures have gone, by Grande Vitesse -
Kindly write me a line at once to say that it is all right -
I still hope to come over to see you -
J. McN. Whistler
