Dr. Waagen forwards to Dr. Becker a letter (see VIC/ADDA10/85/213) from Monsieur Payen (the guardian of the painter Vieille's son - see VIC/ADDA10/85/211) from which it seems an extra 100 francs is required to secure the picture for Prince Albert; he suggests that Becker inform Guillard or Payen of the Prince's decision.

Dr. Waagen's letter is written on the second page of Payen's letter.
