110. Rue du Bac. Paris.

In great haste, a line to acknowledge proofs - very good - but want cleaning. We will wait for a moment - The report about F. A. S. Exhibition[4] quite wrong - I know Mr. Van Wisselingh[5] very well - and we like him very much - But my ideas about Exhibition are quite new and original!! Will tell you and your Father[6] by and bye.
