James Joyce autograph letter signed to his friend, the sculptor August Suter. On Victoria Palace Hotel stationery in Paris, where Joyce lived at the time, he writes to Suter on 29 April 1924 in German, translated in full, ''Dear Mr. Suter: May I introduce to you a friend of mine from Ireland, an artist [Patrick Tuohy] who painted a portrait of my father that has been talked about quite a lot. He would very much like to meet you. I do not know how you will communicate with each other, since he does not speak German and very little French. Maybe your kind wife might be able to help? Mr. Muller is coming to see me tomorrow. / I am almost going out of my mind in this impossible situation. / Sending a handshake / James Joyce''. The impossible situation that Joyce refers to is likely Dr. Walter Muller's attempts to find a publisher for the German translation of ''A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man''. Single page letter on bifolium stationery measures 5.25'' x 7''. Single fold and light toning, overall very good condition.
