THE GRAFTON GALLERIES LIMITED
Just one line in reply to the main points of your valuable letter.
We mean to have a fairishly large collection of Albert Moores - to devote a room to them & altogether to do it as well as possible. I will send you a List on Saturday.
Baldry is helping me - so is Hollyer the Photographer & Henry Moore does a little.
I went & saw Labouchère in his romping ground - the House - this afternoon & I am to see [p. 2] the Proscenium tomorrow. You are a "Génie universal" - I had been chasing for it in vain.
More shortly! à tantôt -
F G Prange
I hope to open towards the 15 Janry & to get in the pictures between X'mas & New Year.
