Maignan Letter

13 January 1903

Mr. Le Directeur
I learnt today through Mr. Pretet, of all the efforts you made to support the interests of the French artists for the Earl's Court exhibition.
In my position of Vice President of the Board of the Beaux Arts in Paris, I wish to express how we are grateful to you.
I have also to thank you personally for your help in selling my painting "The Sleeping Mermaid". You were kind enough as to give me the name of the buyer - if you could give me his address I would be very much obliged.
Yours faithfully
Albert Maignan
