My dear Maus -
I had hoped to pay you a little visit this time - but it was impossible!
And now I am most anxious about my Sarasate picture - though of course I know that it must be all right - for you promised me that it should go on from your exhibition to the Salon - Therefore doubtless you have already sent it - for you all [p. 2] know that the last day for receiving it there is the 13th or 14th -
I wouldn't miss it for any thing - It ought to have gone to the care of Durand Ruel - unless you have sent it to the care of an Agent of your own - as I trust you have - for it would not have been safe to send it to the Salon unless in the charge of some one - at least I fancy so - Do forgive my anxiety and write to me or telegraph a word at once -
Duran[d] Ruel is you of course know the Editeur, marchand de tableux in Paris I think Rue de la Paix - or Rue Castigliani -
Always Yours -
