My dear Sir,
Some days previous I was highly gratified to receive your kind letter. The noble sentiments expressed by you are such as must honor a true American and your liberal feelings toward your brother artists will always be cherished. It gives me great pleasure to be remembered among your friends and I trust that our friendship will be everlasting.
I know that all the members of my Paris house have often expressed the kindest feelings for yourself and also an admiration for the masterly productions of your genius. How glad would they be to have you in Paris! One day or the other, you may feel inclined to visit Paris, the world of gaiety and fascination, and you may rest assured to meet with true friends.
I am glad to hear, that you are pleased with "Music is Contagious." I have had no news of the "boys catching rabbits" and that gem of "Just in tune." As soon as the
proofs have arrived I will inform you. By the way, do not forget the companion picture of "Just in tune" and also "the raffle." Is the picture of "Mexican news" ready? I hope all your family are well. Please remember me to all and believe me as ever
Yours very truly
