Dear Nellie -

Just a line in time to catch the post -

I think first you had better send me at once the little picture[3] again of myself in studio -

This time I think we may sell it - I shall try through Duret[4] -

Little Mr Thomson[5] will send it over for you to me here -

With love to both in [p. 2] great haste.

Jimmie -

about the etching[6] will think -
