Letter written by Mata Hari France, 1908


March 21, 1908

Dear Mr. Bormes,

I hope you remember me when I danced two years ago at the opera in “The King of Lahore.” Please do me a great pleasure and let me have an opera ticket for tonight. I am very grateful to you and will come by to say hello one of these days.
