Mon cher Ami -

Forgive my troubling you with the enclosed but I have not Mourey's[4] address - and I thought he would be pleased with these notices of the English press -

L'atelier[5] va bien - mais pour vous le montrer j'attendrai encore quelques jours de perfectionnement -

Du reste je tacherai de venir mardi[6] prochain -

Many kind things to the ladies[7] from us[8] both -
Always

Translation:

The studio is going well - but in order to show it to you I shall wait for a few days of further improvements -

In any case I shall try to come next Tuesday -
