I am so sorry, dear Mrs Pennell, but I have been so filled with fogg - dear me I have spelt it with two g s!. and none too many! -
When you came that next day & found me absent from the hotel, I had really gone forth that I might rid myself, if only for the morning, [p. 2] of the room, the landlady & the cooking! - all of which had driven me to a state of frenzy! -
But directly I get out again I shall come and listen to the stories of the Returned One - & tell you how distressed I have been to have disturbed your table - I mean disarranged it, as I have done of late! -
Buckingham Street though, late at night, is a rather dangerous though fascinating place! -
J. McNeill Whistler
