RUE ST. PAUL, 39

ANVERS,

LE 22 Mars 1890.

Monsieur

J'ai déposé ce matin entre les mains du Procureur du Roi votre plainte à charge du Sieur Sheridan Ford[2]. Ce magistrat m'a promis de faire saisir cet apres-midi chez Mme Kohler[3] les objets contrefaits[4].

J'ai reçu votre dépêche; mais Mme Kohler n'a pas cru pouvoir donner suite à ma demande, & a déclaré qu'elle disposerait de l'édition selon que Justice ordonnerait

Je n'ai pas votre adresse chez moi - la procuration ayant dû être déposée; - J'espère que cependant cette lettre vous parviendra.

Agréez Monsieur mes salutations distingueés

Alb Maeterlinck

Mr. Whistler.

ANVERS,

22 March 1890.

Dear Sir

I have this morning deposited in the hands of the Prosecutor Royal your complaint concerning Mr Sheridan Ford. The magistrate has promised to have the counterfeit objects seized this afternoon at Mrs Kohler's.

I have received your telegram; but Mrs Kohler did not think she could accede to my request, & declared that she would dispose of the edition according to the orders of the Court

I do not have your address with me - the power of attorney having had to be lodged - I hope that nevertheless this letter will reach you.

Yours faithfully

Maeterlinck

Mr. Whistler.
