this shocking scoundrel to escape! To think that when we despaired of even getting hold of him - because, as you pointed out, of the difficulties of extradition - he should of his own accord run right into your arms is amazing! - It would be unpardonable if by any chance this time he were to slip through the very clever fingers of the New York Police.

With hearty congratulations upon such excellent work. believe me dear Mr Alexander Always Sincerely Jms McNeil Whistler
