Abstract:

Thanking him for 50 francs and his letters, and mentioning that he has sent off the proofs of poems (for his Verses) as well as a new poem for the Savoy. Noting that his story (perhaps The Dying of Francis Donne) "does not march very well," but that he is "working away at it." Mentioning that he is glad Smithers will be "printing some copies of the Verses on Japanese vellum," hoping that Beardsley is recovering from his illness, and mentioning mutual acquaintances in London. Asking Smithers to send copies of his Verses "when the book of poems appears" to John Gray, M. le Vicomte de Lautrec, Lionel Johnson, M. Léopold Nelken, Mrs. William Wilde, Symons and a Japanese vellum copy to Mdlle Adelaide Foltinowicz. With a postscript on a sheet of notepaper mentioning that he becomes nervous about money when his bill is due around the 13th of the month and has thought of moving to a small island to further economize.
