My dear Miss Birnie Philip

I wrote Messrs Putnam[3] as arranged and also Messrs Radford[4] -

None of us thought of the time - Mine passed so interestingly - By just missing a train at St Pancras I managed to be home by eleven -

[p. 2] I have just received a little New year calendar Français from Mrs Lawson[5]. She only puts Paris, so will you please send her my best wishes for her new year & her son's & thank her for the Louvre Catalogue. I will pay her when I see her as at present I am frankless.

Kindest regards
Yours sincerely

William Webb
