Letter to Madame Frey. In part (translated): "Excuse my delay in returning your little album. I'm not a poet and I fear that my making black marks in it would ruin all its charm. I'll limit myself to the enclosed card which you can add if you wish…I've talked about Mr. Frey's wishes with Mr. Gaumont and he can get in touch with him…perhaps some interesting result can be hoped for." In fine condition.
