Rich letter from the Montmartre painter evoking his topicality: "I only have to sing the hosannah of the digestion of the chapon which has been quite remarkable. I always maintain my Albige travel plan. Tell Dad his trinkets are transported to his workshop - as he had indicated. Bourges and I have found an apartment on the 21st Street fountain, so the move will not be very perilous. I am sending you herewith a very kind article which appeared on me [antoine jules article in the newspaper the pen of February 13, 1891 where the toulouse's drawing the otherc is compared to that of edgar degas], recriminating a good place, although that which the circle gave me is not too bad, given the old people who are entitled to the cimas [allusion here to his participation in the exhibition of the artistic and literary circle volney which took place from January 26 to February 24, 1891].
I just made the picture of gaston bonfoy and just started the one of louis. I hope they won't be too ugly.
On this I wish you copious digestions for Tuesday fat [10 February 1891] previous those most windy of Lent [5 March 1891]. Toulouse-lautrec shares an apartment with Dr.Henri bourges, whose portrait he paints, at 19 rue Fontaine à paris from 1887 to 1891, then at number 21 of the same street until the doctor married in 1893.In his letter, he evokes the portraits of his two friends, gaston bonfoy and louis pascal, belonging to a set of five portraits of friends executed in 1891, which he wishes to present at the salon of the independents that year. In the end, he has only three for the salon, including that of gaston bonfoy today in the collections of the Thussen-bornemisza museum of madrid, and that of louis pascal at the Toulouse-lautrec museum of albi.
