In French, to his friend, the collector Victor Chocquet (1821-91), sending good wishes for the New Year from Capri: "I am writing to you from an ideal small island, where one lives outside in plain sunshine surrounded by the blue sea, and orange trees, and olive trees and flowers. Otherwise, I am thinking of Paris, of the old friends that I left there, and I do not wish to let a new year come round without renewing the sincere marks of my deep friendship and gratitude to them. Therefore I wish you, my good friend, and Madame Chocquet plenty of years, one better than the other.
