Dear Mr Seligman,

I am very sorry I neglected to write to you and to answer your very kind letter.Our little baby was very ill and with my absence I forgot my duties;after that I thought my letter would arrive too late.

Please arrive when you like from Paris, I'll be at the Library every day, even Saturday that week.

Yes the photographs arrived safely;thank you very much. The quality and quantity of them make me fear that the bill might be too high.

I hope to see you soon.

Sincerely yours,
L. M. J. Delaisse
