Sept. 23. '1894'
I am sending you two more drawings - because I can't help it! - and I do hope they will turn out all right - I would get them on the stones at once in all their freshness - They were done last night - I rely on their simplicity for their success - I send also some more paper - very lovely old Dutch & I think just a pretty size - We will call No. 1 "La Robe Rouge" - I rather want to see how this colour is conveyed! you will think me quite crazy! - No. 2. "La Dormeuse" Do write at once to say arrived safely - By the way you might print me another ten of the "Forge du Passage du Dragon" -
