in all about $100,000.
Mr Watson bought the 2 latter also a very good Ziem. He asked to see the Anthony Roux picture & I told him Roux was away & that he had also sold the Corot, but he hasn't the first idea that you bought it, he will be greatly surprised when he learns that it is adorning a Pittsburgh home.
I presume by this time you are enjoying your purchases of this summer, they no doubt have added greatly to the tone of your collections. I feel anxious to see how they look at home.
I feel worried to know where to find star pictures for the coming winter having now sold about everything in sight. Have been very quiet since you left no late hours nothing but work.
Sully has gotten a great Romney such a beautiful young girl 25 x 30. Watson went wild over it but had spent all his money in Paris.
Looking forward to the pleasure of seeing you next month with kind regards to your family & Mellon
Chas. A. Carstairs
