Too bad of you Juliano -
Why would you not answer! - I thought you would have been so pleased with the enclosed cutting from the N. Y. Herald - my letter about Gen. Rush Hawkins? - In any case I have heard nothing from you - and among the large number of congratulations from Paris, I certainly missed a note from yourself to say that you were glad I had the red ribbon [p. 2] but not a word from either you or Waldo!
However! - Now I want you to do this thing for me - Mallarmé wrote some time ago about a small Hotel with two studios to let - in the Bois de Boulogne - Rent 3000 francs - The Proprietor is M. Chabrié - à Bois d'Arcy - St Cyr. (Seine et Oise)
What I wish you would do is to go and look over the house - (It has also a garden) - and tell me whether you think it would do for us - I can't tell you more details as to its' situation, exact, but if you could make an appointment with Mallarmé 89. Rue du Rome, it would be very nice of you to go together - I will write to Mallarmé and tell him
And will you write to me? Mallarmé is the poet you know
With best wishes from us both for the New Year,
