'[Aug. 1898]'

My dear Heinemann -

You will be delighted to meet Monsieur Oulevay[4] an old friend of mine, who is looking at London for the first time -

I am sure also that you will be interested in knowing that he has had many [p. 2] relations with the maison Hachette[5] -

So that although his chief aim in visiting England is to enter into connection with the establishment of tapestries, founded I believe at the time of the war, by his exiled countrymen, you might still also find means of occupying so distinguished an artist -
