“A thousand worries and my never-ending work have kept me from replying by return mail, to thank you for your letter and your money order of 10,000 francs. I am happy that this painting which has intrigued so many people will end up in appreciative and knowing hands, in the sense as we understand it – But you haven’t told me yet how to go about it! The fact is that the date for my exhibition at Blanche van Parys is being moved back according to when my album of lithos will be finished. This could be delayed even up to the month of January. Do you want me to send you the painting that you will put at my disposition in two months, together with the one that Brun will lend to us?
