Long letter to his London-based art dealer, evoking an urgent need for money, the of money, the painful uncertainties where France is plunged during the Commune. "I will ask you to send me money as soon as possible and as quickly as possible. [... I am not in the habit, as you know, of pressing you when there is no need to do so. on the contrary, it would be wrong of me to inform you of my need for money only at the last moment and to give you a only when it is decidedly urgent.
