Dear Mr. O'K

Instead of going to Saint Malo in this cold weather, why not come here and see me married on Wednesday morning? We shall be delighted to have you among the very few friends present -

[p. 2] Mr. Whistler says you might bring over the famous bottle of cocktails with you yourself -

Do come please!

Very Sincerely Yours

Ethel Birnie Philip

'Married Charles Whibley[3]. Couldn't go.
