6 Passage Stanislas

January 1st 1900.

Madam -

Your intention of continuing at the Académie has in due course been submitted, and Mr Whistler on being reminded of your work, desires me to say - that it cannot be accepted as the ingenuous work of a novice - but is recognised as the outcome of a deliberate training, with which no interference could be possibly entertained.

The effort, and responsibility of such an undertaking, is no part of the plan of the Académie Carmen.

And I have the honour to be, Madam -
Your obedient servant

Inez Bate - Massière - appointed to Mr Whistler.

Miss Peart -
