Letter to fellow painter Paul Mathey, referencing the famous art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel, in part (translated) : « They treat me at Durand Ruel and at your house too, my dear Mathey, as a spoiled old child. We all have to get older and go away, and I feel as if in a hurry in all things and impatient.

I may show it too much. So thank you very much. You did not want to give in to my pusher the other day, who wanted to be forgiven, and that I had too much morality.

And you offer me the drawing. I take it like a wolverine. I will one day find an opportunity to avenge myself from your kindness. Thanks for the Menzel [German painter Adolph Menzel].
