Dear Lethbridge

I have just got your note which followed me to the country - and back -

If you really mean that you could get here early in the morning 11. o'clock would suit me capitally - [p. 2] for I am rushing into work to make up for wanderings -

Of course I shall be delighted to see you - any day but tomorrow by the way - when I may have to go out -

But say Friday or Saturday at about 11 - or at your own convenience during the day -

Always s[incere]ly

J McNeill Whistler
