May 13th, 1936

Dear Mr. Brewster:

I hasten to write these line to you to apologize for having left Chicago so abruptly, taking back to New York with me the Gauguin picture which had been hanging in the Institute for only two days, and which I hoped would remain long enough for you to see.

Indeed I hope that you did not go to the Art Institute only to find out that the picture had been removed.

It was a great pleasure to see you again in such good health, and I am looking forward to the privilege of seeing you soon again either in New York or Chicago.

I am every so grateful for your kind interest.

Please believe me to be

Yours very sincerely,

(C. M. de Hauke)
