Hotel Chatham. Paris.
Thursday 19. April 1900.
One word in desperate haste, to thank you, my dear Peter, and to say that you should send the picture through the Goupils - (5 Regent Street.) to be consigned to their house here on the Boulevards
Mr Marchant, you know, always sends things for me in this way.
So then I am sure to get them immediately & without risk -
Will you then see them about this tomorrow? and so make everything perfect for me -
Of course Mr Marchant will know that all expenses will be put down to me -
Write me a line to say that [p. 2] all is right - and again a thousand thanks,
Always my dear Peter
