In reply to her letter of 27 Apr, in which she repudiates heaving come between Mlle Dussant and Marie. The dispute between them was entirely about affairs at 'Les Ruches' about which she knew nothing; Marie never breathed a word of it till long after she had heard about it from Mlle. Dussant. 'I had alas, no advice to give her till your acts had destroyed it beyond likelihood of retrieval'. [There is a copy of this letter and also a French version. Also a copy of Lina's letter]. Postmark 28 Apr 1884.
