Your whole book is wise & witty but your Ten o'clock is the truest - if not the only true - word about Art since Poe alarmed the ears of Boston by announcing that length was not the test of merit in poetry.
I write this to you in some trepidation, but I should do my nature violence if I remained silent in face of the intense enjoyment your book has given me.
J. MacNeill Whistler Esq.
