In this letter, Monet reserves ''7 barrels of your red wine, if it is of the same quality as that of your last shipment. For white wine, as I was not happy with the last, I do not request any more, since it is not at all good as formerly...'' He signs at the conclusion ''Claude Monet''. Letter runs two pages on bifolium, card-style stationery measuring 5.25'' x 8''. Fold and smudge to portion of writing on first page, else near fine with bold handwriting.
