Dear Mr. Sauter -
I am most anxious that the picture should be delivered in Paris before the [p. 2] [end] of this month - say about the 20th or at latest the 25th. -
And I am so sorry to give you so much, and such continued trouble! -
If you have already sent your orders to Munich I doubt not it will be all right - you can tell me -
And won't you look in if you pass?
With my best compliments to Mrs. Sauter, and thanks to yourself - I didn't half thank you for your kindly getting me the varnish! -
