My dear General.
There is not very much to tell you about this morning's visit to Kelly. He proposes sending for Carmen and dealing gently with her, but in the meantime he wanted to know if there was anyone we could suggest who would throw any light on her.
Jeanne at the studio he thought would be a good one to see & he proposed [p. 2] we should send her to him on Wednesday between 10 & 11 o'clock. We therefore telegraphed to you to know if this should be done.
Maples have sent to-day & will send an estimate as soon as possible. They can undertake to pack the china as they have expert packers of their own. They will get this done perhaps this week but the absolute removal of furniture cannot be commenced until Monday or Tuesday of next week, [p. 3] as they have to send to London for vans.
I am sending the other glove by this post, & hope that the first one reached you safely.
There is no more news, and we are trying to get on with the packing. The concièrge has asked for the rent.
With love from us both & hoping that you are taking great care of yourself
Shall we give the etching plates along with the purple background to Goupil's to send over?
