"Sketch by Vincent," Vincent van Gogh

The Hague, 24th March 1875

Dear Theo,

Would you please find out if there is still a painting by Schotel in Brussels?

It was sent from here on commission May 6, 1870. Perhaps Uncle has already sent it back to Paris.

But if not, please have it returned here immediately. We have a chance of selling it, but it is urgent. Last summer I saw it at your gallery, so I think it may still be there.

Give my compliments to Uncle and Aunt, Mr. Schmidt and Eduard.

I suppose you have got my letter already. Adieu and best wishes.
