Letter from 5th Marquess of Lansdowne - 15 July 1920
Letter from 5th Marquess of Lansdowne, dated 15 July 1920, inviting de László to increase his fee
Dear Mr de Laszlo
Let me say how very grateful I am to you for your fine achievement accomplished under many difficulties mostly of your sitter's creation. Lady Lansdowne is delighted with her acquisition.
I had some informal conversation with you as to the fee which you were to receive, but I do not think you should be bound by anything which you said to me on that occasion. I confess that I had in my mind something of the nature of a sketch and not such a fine work of art as you have produced.
Please let me have a line from you as to this and I will send you your well earned cheque without delay.
