Letter from Sargent to Robinson, March 10, 1904

31 Tite Street
[March 10th 1904]

My dear Ned

I am delighted at the prospect of seeing you and I wish I had known of your coming a bit sooner so as to be free in the evenings – As it is I am stuck full until Sunday the 20th, with the exception of day after tomorrow Saturday when I hope you and Mr Warren will dine with me. I am writing you to know and will try to get Henry James & Alfred Parsons –

I will come & fetch you at Garlants Hotel at 7.30 or so, as we would drive to that [illegible] –

I sent to Mr Robinson’s care the [illegible] & photographs of an El Greco that is for sale in Spain, & that I think would be a great prize for the Boston Museum. In case it hasn’t caught you up, I will show you another photograph of it here –

We could lunch together sometime during your stay – that is my best time for I have two sittings a day [illegible] & as you [illegible] of evenings taken –

Kind regards to Mr Warren – I don’t know who the other members of your party are –

Yours sincerely,

John S. Sargent
