THREE HORS COMMERCE COPIES INSCRIBED BY VALERY.

Valery had good reason to be intimidated, as Henraux was the owner of several of Degas' drawings. Charmes.... and Propos are inscribed to Lucien's wife, "a Elizabeth Heuraux / tristement / P.V." and "a Elisabeth Heuraux, / avec les amities ... de son ami / P.V.", respectively, both in the year of her husband's death.
