Dear Mrs Farquhar -

Only a line to say that I have arranged not to expect you until Monday - and also to let your sister "Miss Jo"[3] know that I don't mean going to the Academie[4] tomorrow! - so that she need not hasten out into the cold -

With kindest regards to you all
Very sincerely

J McNeill whistler

I hope you are not catching any new colds!
