    A LETTER FROM RENOIR TO ALINE DESCRIBING HIS EXPERIENCE IN ALGIERS

    THE RENOIR COLLECTION

    Autograph letter signed, two pages [one sheet, folded], likely located in Algiers that reads: My little one, I forgot to tell you that I was with my brother at the Café Helder at Mustapha, Algiers. It's very beautiful and I think I will bring back nice things. I have a list of choices, for everything is beautiful. Don't forget when writing me to put my first name. I am going to take a trip right away or later in three weeks. You won't be surprised, if by chance you don't receive a report, for my letters will stay in Algiers. In the places where I go, I fear that I won't be able to receive letters for there is not a railway or make the voyage in a stage-coach and that does not go quickly. In any case, I will write you if I stay or if I leave. I kiss you, don't get too bored. I am very presumptuous, in fact. Auguste. PS I have a beautiful deer head above my bed.
