My dear Mr. Harry -

Do you think I might trouble you about those pictures of mine that were exhibited in Brussels[2]? - If so will you kindly make enquiries and write me a line telling me how it is that I have not received them?

The Exposition closed I understood long ago, and as yet I have heard nothing about my work - What has happened? - I am really anxious - and as you were so kind in the past, I venture to come to you for assistance in this matter -

With our kindest regards to yourself and Mrs Harry[3]
Always sincerely yours
