Paul Gauguin to Vincent van Gogh. Paris, December 1887.
If you come on my behalf you will find at Cluzel’s, the framer in rue Fontaine, a painting that I have delivered for you (for our exchange). If you do not consider it suitable, let me know, and come and choose yourself. Forgive me if I do not come to collect your paintings myself, I am so rarely in your part of town. I shall collect them from 19 boulevard Montmartre if you will be so kind as to leave them there.
