A line in haste, that no time may be lost, and that the two loyal ones be present at this Tournament of Montparnasse!
I see though in looking again that Madame Inez steps into the Arena alone! -
Well then [p. 2] I wish her every success! -
and you shall tell me how she gallantly carries all before her! smiling kindly upon those she leaves in the dust!!
The letters have all come - and most excellent & rapid has been the Apprentice Envoy extraordinaire - !
Mr. Webb has everything - and you will doubtless hear from him directly -

Dated from the reference to Webb and the probable reference to JW's missing pictures (see below).
Written on narrow bordered mourning paper.
5. Mr. Webb
William Webb (b. ca 1851), of G. and W. Webb, lawyer [more]. This probably relates to Carmen Rossi, model, proprietess of the Académie Carmen [more], whom JW suspected had been removing works from his studio and selling them. On 14 June 1902, JW managed to recover one of them, Rose et or: La Napolitaine (YMSM 505), with the Addams's assistance (see I. Addams to JW, #00119, and G. Bergaud to C. Addams, #04637).
