Letter from the journalist Clémence Rose, who has been given a letter of introduction to de László from one of the artist's good friends, Mrs József Hampel, to de László. Rose recounts a visit to the 1903 Annual Exhibition at the Künstlerhaus in Vienna where she was impressed by de László's portrait of Alice Barbi , a "complex soul"; his two "gentleman" portraits  [4884,] which "art connoisseurs will covet"; and his portrait of Archduchess Friedrich of Austria , "a finely harmonised painting" that "will find its place in a beautiful princely collection". The sender would like to meet de László before he leaves Vienna for Ireland. She describes Henry Wickham Steed as "an intelligent and charming man I am sure you will like"
