Mon cher Maître et ami

Chaufton[2] m'apprend la décision de la Cour Suprême. C'est un succès complet pour le principe pour l'art et pour les artistes.

Il est du à votre persévérance il est donc naturel que je vous attribue votre part dans la victoire - C'est la part du capitaine.

Cordialement à vous

Translation:

My dear Master and friend,

Chaufton informs me of the Supreme Court's decision. This is an absolute triumph for principals for art and for artists.

This is thanks to your perseverance so it is therefore only natural that I attribute to you your part in the victory - the role of the Captain.

Cordially yours,

P Beurdeley
