110. Rue du Bac - Paris.
My dear Mr. Harry -
I enclose copy of the letter that my two seconds, Messieurs Octave Mirbeau, and Francis Viélé-Griffin have sent to one or two of the London papers - and I should be greatly pleased to see it in the Independence Belge -
You need to take an interest in all these affairs of mine, and I trust that you have not sufficiently forgotten me, to make you as yet indifferent! -
I dare say you will have heard of [p. 2] this matter of Mr. George Moore and myself -
Mr. Moore wouldn't fight - Probably you saw the Proces verbal in the Figaro - In any case I cut it out and send it too -
Since then much has been done to misrepresent the affair - and therefore my seconds have written the enclosed letter -
The Indépendence is so much seen - that every one not only in London, but in Paris, will read it -
Besides I have always had great delight in the charming way you have done these things - with such a light touch and yet so completely effective - so that I should especially like to see you take this one in hand! -
Also it would be very nice of you to send me two or three copies of the paper with it in -
How is it I never see anything of you now? You surely cannot go through Paris without looking me up? . -
Heinemann was here the other day - on his way back from Florence -
