"Dear friend, The proofs I have sent you are of interest to you, I am flattered. I learn that, as they are to be part of a future album of my studies on P. & le Ch. de M., even in the imperfect edition of l'Éclaireur de Nice they will not be able to exist when the album in question is published. It won't be for another year. Then I will replace them for you. You will find them in the set that I will ask you to accept. Glad to hear that your foot has healed, you will be able to spread your wings". He hopes to see him in January
