Dear Mr Hind
In answer to your letter of yesterday I suppose the fact if a good many of my provence items being sold will be no obstacle to your reproducing a few. Better ask Chenil. As for me I consent. I await in a state of almost intolerable anxiety to know whats the matter with Van Gogh and me. Esq. Augustus John. Glad the things interest you.
