Cher Monsieur!

Il m'a fait un grand plaisir d'apprendre par M. Zorn[2] que vous avez notre exposition de l'année prochaine en bon souvenir. Tout specialement [sic] je vous suis reconnaissant que vous voulez nous confier votre "Dame en blanc[3]", que j'étais si heureux de revoir dans [p. 2] votre studio à ma visite chez vous printemps dernier.

Recevez cher Monsieur l'assurance de mes sentiments les plus distingués
