TELEGRAMS, BOUSSOD, LONDON.

Jan. 6th 1894

Dear Sir,

We beg to inform you that your picture:
"The Music Room[2]"
belonging to Mme Révillon[3] of St Petersburgh has been delivered by us to Messrs Christie Manson & Woods[4].

When Mme Revillon first intimated to us her desire to adopt this course, we did [p. 2] our best to dissuade her from it but her further instructions were a peremptory order to send the picture to Christie's with whom she has made all the necessary arrangements.

We of course thought it would be interesting for you to possess this information

We are, Dear Sir,
Yours faithfully

pp. [stamped:] BOUSSOD VALADON & CO.
