any of the American papers for an article at present. But I do hope you will let me of service if I can, when you come to Paris. I know Matisse fairly well (he thought he would be away in the fall but I ^[[insertion]] think [[/insertion]] the Steins might help you.) and I know Picasso, Maurice Denis, Roussel and Vallotton slightly. I could reach most everyone else I think. Do let me know as soon as you come or, rather, before. I go to Germany in about ten days for a visit with my parents before their return to America. In all probability I shall be coming back myself after two [[insertion below line]] or [[/insertion]] three months in Paris.
   In the matter of quantity I am disappointed in my work here - I had meant to do such piles of pictures and find I have to go over them again and again instead of letting 'em go after one sitting as I used to. I feel I have done my best here though and - wonder of wonders - have painted one thing that is a total break from my old humdrum stuff. It had hardly changed in years. (The Autumn Salon is from Oct. 1st to Nov. 8th).
   Hoping you and your family are all very well, I am
Cordially yours   Walter Pach
