Record 1 of 31
I am perfectly wretched my dear Mrs. Lucas both in mind and body - deaf dumb and blind with a cold - unable to tell the difference between an oyster paté and a gooseberry tart! Fancy that at your table - and I am miserable not to be dining with you - Forgive my not writing sooner - but I fully intended coming up to this last moment - and your kind note only came last night - just as I was [p. 2] wishing to answer Lukes.
Will you say many things for me to your guests and will you and Luke persuade them to come with you tomorrow afternoon and drink a cup of tea with this invalid in the studio at about five o'clock -
Ever sincerely yours
with kindest regards
J A McN. Whistler.
Dont trouble about writing a note - its awful! but send a verbal answer that you will come tomorrow -
Dated from signature.
