    TWO LETTERS FROM RENOIR TO ALINE ARRANGING THEIR RENDEZVOUS IN DIEPPE

    THE RENOIR COLLECTION

    Autograph letter signed, two pages [one sheet folded, two pages blank], no date [Saturday], Renoir writes: My dear friend, I leave tomorrow for Le Havre and Tuesday morning for Dieppe. So Wednesday I will wait for you at the train station. Write me in care of general delivery at Dieppe. I can't tell you where Varengeville is. I know that it is near Dieppe, but I don't remember where. If it is near St. Aubin, it is the station before Dieppe. As soon as I am in Dieppe, I will find out. The most convenient train is the 7:45 a.m. or the 12:45 p.m. train. I embrace you, Auguste. If you have something to tell me write me at Hôtel de L'amirauté. Accompanied by a second autograph letter signed, one page, no date [Monday], located Le Havre, reads: My dear friend, I will leave tomorrow at five minutes to seven and will be in Dieppe for lunch. Send me a telegram or overnight letter to Dieppe. Seine inferior. Love, Auguste. The morning train at 7:45 am is the most convenient or the train at 12 something.
