To Mrs. Howard Cockerell
THE WHITE HOUSE
Delighted my dear Miss Heyward - pray make my compliments to Mr Cockerell and say how charmed I shall be to see him with you on Sunday -
Also receive my most sincere congratulations and best wishes - Of course I had heard the news already for you do not fancy that you can be carried away from among us silently! - so of course we all know and are only pacified by your promises to still live in our midst -
Ever sincerely yours
J. McN. Whistler
