My dear Willie -
I wrote to him ten days ago at least, a very nice little note with full directions as to the picture & its varnishing - and I think he might have acknowledged it -
Then again everything is possible and [p. 2] [it] may have gone astray so you had better ask -
What about Homburg? - When are you going to leave that d black country we have both been at loggerheads with for so many years?
With love to both of you from us both
1. [10/17 September 1893?]
