[Miss Marion Draughan[3] -
39. Avenue Kleber.]

The White Coon's[4] letter is charming!! and I am so relieved! -

I feared my Florida Gurl[5] [sic] had been destroyed! by my own reckless self! -

Come to the Studio on Sunday -

We will invent more wonderful things!

Also I am rushing through the portrait[6] - which is a marvel too - as you will see - and then!

[butterfly signature]

You will understand how pushed I am by my not appearing this evening.

Sunday then at 10.30.
