Carjat & Cie. letterhead, Paris, April 20, 1889. Letter to "Hudelist." In part (translated): "You were so nice about my daughter that it encourages me to ask you for another little favor. It concerns your displaying in your window the photograph of the incomparable...mandolin quartet which returned from St. Petersburg with an ample supply of praise. The father has been my friend for 20 years; I saw the brats born and develop their talent...I am counting on you to provide for the eyes of the passers-by their nice mugs and the quartet (of your servitor) who accompanies them." Central vertical and horizontal folds, uniform shade of toning, and a couple tiny tears to the upper border, otherwise fine condition.
