Sunday evening, 5 May 1889

Having to go away tomorrow and being busy on Tuesdays, I place myself at your disposal to accompany you to St-Rémy on Wednesday.1 We would leave by the 8.51 train, if that suits you. Having already seen Mr Peyron, it is appropriate that I should accompany you myself.2

Yours truly,


Br. 1990: 772 | CL: -
