I shall probably return in the middle of the week - but you will hear -
Now by tomorrow's post you must send me the letter that was written to Mons. Bailly, President of the Exposition - and that was returned because of insufficient postage - Send the letter & the envelope -
My address is
"Hotel du Tibre"
Rue du Helder. No. 8.
Put simply Monsieur Whistler - on the envelope - enclose after Mrs. Godwin has seen them whatever she may give you of the letters that have [p. 2] come -
Tell John that I was surprised and greatly vexed to find that he had put up no shirts for me - excepting the 3 white ones - so that I am without any coloured ones - and I had especially told him to pack a couple with the small dots, black & pink -
I had a tolerable journey - but there were crowds of people on board and I went to six hotels this morning, without finding a room -
Paris is splendid -
Tell Roussel that he must work hard also he must write to me -
'I feel sad, Mr [illegible] wants me to [illegible] them, & on the river today [illegible] hard to say that I had such a crowd of work [as?] there [three or four illegible words]'
1. [June 1887?]
The reference to Mrs Godwin, with no mention of E. W. Godwin, suggests that this letter dates from after the latter's death in 1886. The reference to an exhibition suggests a date of ca June 1887 (see below).
3. Mons. Bailly
Bailly, an exhibition organiser. The exhibition may be Exposition Internationale de Peinture et de Sculpture, Galerie Georges Petit, Paris, 1887.
7. I feel sad
It is likely that this note, written in the right margin, does not actually belong to this letter. It may be a personal note, written by Hanson, or belong to the other letter written on the same sheet of paper (see #09134).
