To the cellist and conductor Achille Kerrion (1868-1939), whose letter dismayed him somewhat, considering what Lamoureux had said to him and his colleagues on the Saturday past, which Kerrion, who is now in doubt as to Lamoureux's affection, seems to have misunderstood - doubts he hopes to dispel by inviting him to attend a rehearsal that morning: "Je n'ai pu trouver le temps de répondre à ta lettre qui m'a fait un peu de peine, surtout après ce que j'ai dit, à toi et à tes collègues violoncellistes à la répétition de Samedi.

Tu n'as donc pas compris et tu doutes de ma sympathie pour toi? c'est mal. Viens donc répéter tranquillement ce matin, tu sais bien que je t'aime beaucoup et que je ne t'estime pas moins [...]". - On headed stationery of the "Concerts Lamoureux", the orchestral concert society founded by Lamoureux in 1881. - Remnants of a strip of paper mounted on verso..
