CAILLEBOTTE Gustave (1848-1894).
4 L.A.S. "G. Caillebotte", Petit Gennevilliers August-September 1892, to Claude MONET; 7 and a half pages in-8 or in-12, one address. Friendly correspondence to Claude Monet. 23 August. Billard promises to write in two or three days about a place for Jacques HOSCHEDÉ: "What a great weather. But oil painting is very difficult"... September 18. He is surprised to have no news of Billard: "If he can't fit the young man in, I don't understand why he doesn't say so"... He would like to see Monet, in Paris or in Giverny: "You know that I am always thinking of my painting. I'll put it off. You can't believe how much you've touched me by giving me this gift. I can only tell you one thing. I accept it as you gave it to me and it will never leave my house except to go to the Luxembourg while waiting for the Louvre"... * [September]: "I forgot to answer you about the gardener. I don't know any, but I'll find out"... [End of September]. He saw Billard: Monet can send Jacques Hoschedé to Le Havre around October 15. "For a month I have been waiting for a morning with a westerly wind and sunshine. I had set my mind on making boats. It's worse than anything else. The good weather is over. It's a failure"...
