Autograph letter signed, one page [one sheet folded, three pages blank], no date [Sunday morning], reads: It is still bad weather and I am still not sure if I will be able to finish my paintings, especially as my models leave regardless on the 5th. We will see. I send you 100 francs. It is all I can do for the quarter hour and I will take off that amount from next month, I warn you. It is up to you to manage. I embrace you, Auguste. Sunday morning. Accompanied by a second autographed letter signed, two pages [one sheet folded, two pages blank], written on graph paper, no date [Tuesday], likely in Dieppe, Renoir anticipates receiving a letter from Aline acknowledging whether she received the 100 francs he sent her Sunday which she should have received yesterday and speculates that he didn't put enough postage on it... I received your letter in which you tell me your maid is not working out. It should not be too difficult to dismiss her and get another, since you are the mistress of your actions, from the moment that you do not surpass your budget-- which never happens. It is still raining in Dieppe and we have a high tide today. I'm going this evening to Wargemont with the Blanches. I embrace you, Auguste.
