He has a pretty face, he is very young and he would be easy for you, my dear Taylor, to have him begin somewhere and live until he starts working. See in your charity and your universality if you do not find him any resource...This poor boy is named Emile Giliotte and said himself that he come from Brussels...'' He then gives his address as ''6 rd Stables Artois''. Two page letter on card-style bifolium stationery measures 10.5'' x 8.25''. Folds, else near fine.
