It will be all right my dear Willie I hope - for Duret is seeing to the sale of the little picture - and I have a great success at the Salon with Montesquiou's portrait - So hold on! - for these things take of course a little time - especially when we want them -
I live in an amazing hurry just now - and have to bolt -
Keep a stiff upper lip - and it is sure to come all right -
Abut the etchings I really dont know - but perhaps you might just send over to me tomorrow the little package - and I might see -
Love from both
