To Miss Jessie Sharples. Jan 25, 96
My Dear Child, your very delicious letter comes upon me in the midst of a long spell of difficult work which may keep me employed for some time, therefore I must ask you to look out for a reply & a little sketch some time in the future, & if you do not hear, --- well I shall always be glad of a reminder from such a quaint pen. Believe me. Yours very Sincerely Louis Wain"
