Letter 1.9

...Yes, there is, it seems, a present you could send: some permanent dye. The bark dye is simply terrible. If I perspire - as one must in the tropics – the dye gets on me, runs into splotches on the robes, etc., looks bad and ruins the cloth as well. It washes half out in plain water, let alone soapy water. I'm enclosing a few threads. These are approximately the right co1or - even darker would not hurt. If you could send - using your experience as an artist - the right combination of dyes to match this color (approximately) it would be very welcome…
