My dear Laszlo

I have seen the beautiful Exhibition of your really wonderful pictures & cannot tell you

how much I enjoyed seeing them. I don't know which I admired most but the picture of my old & very

good friend Lord Byng stands out in my memory. I think it is a most wonderful likeness of a very strong personality. Lady Airlie too



is wonderful & Annie Ahlers but they all fascinate me. I was so pleased to see you. We have been such good friends


for so long & I assure you I much value the affection that exists between us.

I am
Yours Ever
