Written in his usual turquoise ink to a "cher ami": "It is agreed for Sunday Lunch. I think I need to change my lenses. This said if you could bring some strawberries, this would make me happy. Regarding the colours, it is going very well with the new one of Guichardin. See you Sunday [...]" (translated from the French original). – Monet was losing his sight at this time and attempting to complete his water lilies series. – On headed Giverny paper, folded across.
