In French, partially translated: "I left Paris several days ago and that's why you had my exposé a little late. I'm equally sorry that I didn't give you an immediate appointment time because of this absence…/ I should be in Paris the 15th or the 16th in order to judge the Prix de Rome contest. Please reply to me by sending a word. I will already be there …to figure everything out./…I would be enchanted to welcome you here. In anticipation of a response, yours faithfully".
