Letters to Léon Yeatman
[16? June 1894]
Yes, dear friend,
despite the things that I am going to say to you, a thousand
thanks. Would you like to see me tomorrow at a time that suits
you (except between 5 and 7)? Would you like to attend the dinner
at the École des Sciences politiques which is taking place
tomorrow in the rue Serpente? Send me a brief telegram.
After leaving you the other day I had a visit from Chefdebien. I will tell which dramatic incidents we resolved then. You can see that I have much to tell you and that you will be well recompensed for the trouble of seeing me. What about our plans for the theatre on Sunday?
[9? September 1897]
My dear little Léon,
I have been in Paris for 2 days and on the
first (yesterday) I broke my nose, as they say, over your studies
before 6 o'clock. Tomorrow, Sunday, would you care to come to
Paris in the afternoon or evening (not in the morning)? I would
be so pleased to be able to see you and I also may have a favour
to ask of you.
You wrote me a very pretty Scottish letter and if I didn't reply to you it was because, not feeling very strong in Kreutznach where I had gone because it is so good for Mamma even though it made me very ill, I was working so hard there that I wasn't able to write any letters at all.
I hope that you are well. Your friend.
P.S. Would you like to dine with me - or have lunch - but at dinner my uncle and aunt will be there ...
