June 5, 1913
Dear Mr. Hauer,
I will write to you, once the second Stein painting is finished; now I ask you to inform me whether you definitely want to purchase the picture with the boxes, because Mr. Reininghaus has already purchased a big one from the new ones and informed me that he also wants the one with the boxes [presumably referring to “Resurrection” (Graves), 1913, K P251]. – I speak from the heart when I ask you that you should speak freely in regard to the price of the picture, where I intended 1500 K [Kronen], whether this is perhaps too high for you. Believe me, if you take genuine delight in the picture, I do not want take the joy away from you by a price that might not suit you. – Please write to me frankly and immediately. – But I want to suggest you that you should have this picture in any case, as it is characteristic of my work and I would be happy to see it in your gallery. With warmest greetings
Egon Schiele.

To Mr. Franz Hauer
