You must forgive this card - but I send off in great haste -

Tell Mrs Johnson[3] that I shall be pleased to see her "client" on Sunday next (day after tomorrow) at from two thirty until about four -

I am awfully tired! and still pretty unable to do anything! -

1.  [16 January 1903]
Although the postmark is dated 17 January 1903, JW's reference to Sunday being the 'day after tomorrow' indicates that this letter was probably written late on the evening of Friday 16 January 1903.

2.  Helen Whistler
Helen ('Nellie') Euphrosyne Whistler (1849-1917), née Ellen Ionides, JW's sister-in-law [more].
