Dear Mrs Pennell -
Here is the last from Gilbert - That will be all right though directly -
When is your wandering husband coming back? -
I was so pleased to hear from Dicker that you had been there, and [p. 2] had seen our garnets - Did you not think them beautiful? -
When shall I come down to hear more news? -
I am leaving Whitehall Court tomorrow - so you might write a line to 8 Fitzroy Street
With kindest regards
J McN Whistler

1. [24/28 February 1897?]
Dated from the address; JW stayed with Heinemann at Whitehall Court throughout February 1897, but seems to have left towards the end of that month. Also dated from the reference to a letter recently received from Herbert Gilbert, (23 February 1897, #11102). The date '[1897, July?]' is (erroneously) inserted in another hand at the top of the sheet.
