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

Portland
