My dear Jonathan -
I am stuck in my room here with a bit of a cold - You ought to have been here before - but if you come out today, you might present yourself this afternoon à l'heure de l'apéritif and égayer the place with [p. 2] some of the latest "little bits"! -
Jonathan Sturges - Esq
New Bond Street -
1. [June 1897/1901]
Dated from the address and a possibly related letter from JW to J. Sturges, #09906. JW stayed regularly at Garlant's Hotel after the death of his wife in 1896. Dated also from the reference to Vanderbilt (see below).
Written at right-angles to the printed address.
Fr., at the cocktail hour and enliven the place.
George Washington Vanderbilt (1862-1914), collector [more], had asked JW to paint his portrait (see Portrait of George W. Vanderbilt (YMSM 481) and Portrait of George Vanderbilt (M.1505)). See also G. Vanderbilt to JW, 18 May 1897, #05914.
7. n'est ce pas?
Fr., Isn't that so?
