|Description:||14 items (12 letters, 2 calling cards)|
Folder one contains five black-bordered letters and one inscribed calling card, written between 1903-1904 to Monsieur Dumas. Merson refuses authorization to reproduce his work using inferior techniques; he regrets that he cannot fulfill a request for a "dessin moyenâgeux" on fifteenth century cuisine; he discusses his participation in the celebration of the Villa Medici's centennial. Folder two contains seven letters and one inscribed calling card written between 1882-1908 to various correspondents. Merson writes of sending works to an exhibition; requests indulgence for a friend's works exhibited at the Salon; writes of delay of work to be delivered; and excuses his absence at a studio due to illness.
