    A LETTER FROM RENOIR TO ALINE IMPARTING SOME CAUTIONARY ADVICE FOR HER SUMMER TRIP TO CHATOU, FRANCE

    THE RENOIR COLLECTION

    Autograph letter signed, three pages [one sheet graph paper, folded] that reads: My dear friend, you will tell Madame Alphonsine that I am thinking of coming to Chatou towards the 8th of September or about, unless there is bad weather. I would like to finish my Cassatt at the Barons. I'm not stopping you to go spend several days at Chatou, on the contrary, you only need pay attention to not put yourself in any gossip in order to be in the good graces with everyone. For it is probably nothing has changed in the rapport on the Island of Chatou. I am so much more content... ask Cecile if the shutters are closed on Rue St. Georges so that the sun does not wash out my piano... You could begin taking classes that will keep you busy... Tell Cecile to not touch anything in the studio, there is a pile of misplaced things and I want to find them the way they are... All my love, Auguste.
