I shall be delighted to come! and I suppose you will be in high good humour! and spirits, for I understand the news[4] this evening is not so "all bad" as you feared!

My compliments then, dear Mr Farquhar, to your wife[5], and à dimanche[6] -

Mrs Farquhar will doubtless [p. 2] give me the further details on Saturday when she comes to the studio -

Very Sincerely

J. McNeill Whistler
