My dear O K! -

Well you had better come over - The Peck[3] picture is perforce to be finished by Thursday - and after that we will manage to complete the little O K[4] -

I have had no time to write - and you must not think me indifferent because of my silence - We can have long talks when you are here - Even these two words are written in the [p. 2] studio while waiting for my sitter -

So now a bientot -
and always yours
