Mr. & Mrs. Walter S. Brewster,
Hotel Madison,
New York City.

Dear Mrs. Brewster,

I just heard that you are in town and sailing on Saturday. I hope, however, that you will find a few spare moments tomorrow to give me the pleasure to see you again.  I am very anxious to show you our new galleries which are generally considered as the finest in New York.

I am [[strikethrough]] always[[/strikethrough]] ^[[also]] very anxious to show you a very fine little MANET which has just arrived from Paris. I was telling Mr. de Hauke only yesterday that he ought to take it to Chicago on his next trip there in order to show it to you.

Wishing you, in case I should not have the pleasure to see you tomorrow, a very pleasant trip, and a very pleasant stay abroad, and hoping to see you in Paris in the Spring, kindly believe me

Yours very sincerely,
