Dearest Coco:

Please let me know how the situation is with the Picasso just brought in Nice., thanks to you.

Do you think that we are going to have it over here in the near future, or do we again fall in the mess between Louvre and foreign exchange commission?

It would be very rewarding if you would be able to have it before the end of the season.  We have a floating demand for a blue Picasso and this would answer it, and it might be sold within a few hours after its arrival.

Germain tells me that he asked you for a price catalog of the sale.  I hope it will be possible to get it.
