Autograph Letter signed: "C. Pisarro", in black ink, 1½p, 5¼x8¼. Paris, 1891 January 1. To "My Dear Wife" (Julie, whom he married in 1871). In French, translated in full: "All the best wishes for the upcoming year, I hope that we bicker less and that we understand each other that it would be better, after all, to make some mutual concessions, in order to live peacefully, it's also in the interest of the children./ Yesterday I got a letter from Lucien containing a letter from Amélie concerning the inheritance. I wrote him that I'll be going on Sunday. I think I will take Ajalbert's advice who told me that a trial was intended and that if I wasn't sure to be paid off I shouldn't initiate it and it is very bothersome to take care of the quibble that would take all my time and would put me in debt. I think it would be better to not do it. You won't be of the same opinion, but it is, however, what's best to do. It has to resolve itself one way or another./ Titi has a little diarrhea right now. It's nothing, [rest of sentence difficult to decipher]. We're soon going to see [1 word difficult to decipher]. Now, at the time of my departure, I embrace you as well as the children. Titi and I wish you a happy new year. Your affectionate husband". A French painter of the Impressionist school, Pissarro (1930-1903) was famed for his landscapes and later cityscapes. A friend of fellow Impressionists including Monet and Cézanne, he helped organize the exhibitions of Impressionist work, the first in 1874, which helped popularize the new style.
