[To M. Pretet]


Paris April 23, 1902

My dear Pretet,

Amongst the persons I recommended to you, there is one to whom I am particularly concerned. He is M. Eugene Guillon, he made the portrait of the Duc d'Alencon. That poor man, I did not see his painting in the Salon, is in a pitiful state, he is one of my good friends and I would be very much obliged if you could do whatever possible for him.

W. Bouguereau
