Bernard Berenson (in Settignano) to Yashiro

Settignano. Apr. 6. 57

My dear Yashiro,

I am distressed to hear of your illness, and unhappy that your plans, and the prospect of having you here soon have to be postponed.

Please keep me informed if only with post-card.

Thanks for the photo of yourself and of your so fascinating wife.

I myself am still too feeble to begin working again, and I am bored by the enforced leisure.

I gave a word of introduction to you for my cousin, Robert Berenson, who is on some U.S.A. mission to the Far East. If without trouble, without the least worry you can help him I should be grateful. But please, do not put yourself out.

With my best to you both.
