23 Sept 1891.

Dear Sir,

As we have wired to you this morning our Paris house writes that they think they can place some of your pictures or pastels at prices from £200 downwards.

Having to send for the Lady Meux[2] portrait & Venice scene[3] as arranged with Mr Richards[4] we trust you will be able to add [p. 2] some examples for this purpose. We have to leave the choice to you, but we think that 3 of your figure pastels would be best & one or two (not more) in oil. Please send a note with the net prices to us "on approbation" as arranged.

Your faithful Servant

[stamped:] BOUSSOD VALADON & CO.

MANAGER.
