Bernard Berenson (in Settignano) to Yashiro

Sept. 1, 1937,

Dear Yashiro,

I have written more than once in the last 18 months without eliciting a word in reply. And in more recent months your art periodical has ceased to reach me. 

I trust this does not mean either that your attitude toward me, or that your own position at home, has undergone a change for the worse.

The new edition of my Florentine Drawings is already in the press. I am beginning to think of the friends to whom copies are to be sent. You naturally rank among them but I must know just how and where to address them so that they shall reach you with the least trouble to yourself. I was in the Aegean during the brief interval that Tucci was here, so that I failed to see him and get information about you from him.

Sincerely yours,

B. Berenson
