They gave me your Stuttgart address at Lausers, OK! and so I can answer your letter - otherwise there would have been no communication possible -
It is quite wonderful what you tell me of the Durer drawings - and the great competition going on - I should like to see that German town myself - and only wish I had time to go on and join you for a while - [p. 2] Write me a line by return, and tell me when you propose to be in Paris - so that I can see whether I return while you are there - or whether I see you here again -
I am glad you like the pictures - especially am I pleased with what you say about my own portrait - for I feared it might have been too sunken in to be at all seen - The "Andalouse" is of course very swagger and in beautiful condition -
You might tell me what all was said, as you saw Caldwell and the other officials, if anything was said, about these pictures -
Who is Mr Macomber of Boston? -
Always my dear O K.
