Mr. Cecil Howard,
14 Avenue de Maine,
Dear Mr. Howard:
I received your letter and thank you very much for your thorough understanding and attitude in the matter concerning your exhibition. The situation is really much more serious than I even supposed!
As Cochet's show had been scheduled, it simply had to go through. It proved to be an important one, and was received with a great deal of appreciation by an intelligent and thoughtful public. A great deal of interest was especially shown by important artists. I put forth every effort and was not able to sell, except for a few drawings and three oils, which were boiught by some friends of mine. I am enclosing herewith a statemnt of sales, and a check for $618.75 to settle the matter.
Will you be good enough to explain to Mr. Cochet and give him the money in francs? Will you please also tell him that the exhibition was a very beautiful one! The frames were made by an artist - Max Kuehne - and suited the pictures perfectly! Also, that the exhibiton as a whole made a deep impression on an important audience. If he wishes, I will
