Dear Howell -
Rossetti is coming to dine tomorrow with us, will you come too at 6.30 - The whole thing was a sudden idea so you must excuse this short notice -
J A Whistler
JW lived at 7 Lindsey Row between March 1863 and January 1866. The letter was stuck in the first of two albums of documents by C. A. Howell. The earliest securely dated letters from JW to Howell in the album date from 1864 ([17/24 May 1864], #02788), the last from 23 August 1881 (#02884). Furthermore, the unusual form of signature is seen only on a few letters dated between 1864 and 1866 (e.g. JW to Lord Houghton, #09152).
