Dear Mrs Farquhar -

I am so sorry to hear that you are not feeling well

- Of course you must not dream of undertaking the pilgrimage until quite yourself again -

The beautiful ladie [sic] will quietly wait for you in her frame! You know that she is devoted to you and you have but to send a little bleu here appointing your own morning - Léonie[3] will have everything ready for you -

I hope you have pleasant news from the other side of the Channel? - Perhaps if the Highland Chieftain[4] is back he will be looking in!

With kindest regards to you both,
Very sincerely

J McNeill Whistler -
