My dear Mr Alexander.

Will you not kindly give your permission to Madame de Monbrisson[3] to see the portrait?

She has but a day in town, and is most anxious to [p. 2] see "Miss Alexander"[4] before going back to Paris - so you will forgive the abruptness of the request. -

She will call then tomorrow or the day after - and if you will only leave orders that she is to be shown the picture, it will be nice of you -

With kindest regards
Always Sincerely

J. McNeill Whistler
