Saturday, October 16th., Thorpe-le-Soken.

London yesterday. Show of French drawings about the war at Leicester Galleries.

I bought a Hermann Paul for 8 guineas.

René Georges Hermann-Paul was an artist of considerable scope who rose to fame during the Belle Époque. He is notable for satiric characterizations of the foibles of French society. Parisians got to know him as a stalwart defender of Alfred Dreyfus during the trail in which the captain was wrongly accused of treason.

The Forains were very fine indeed. 50 guineas each.
