Lachaise writes, "My dear Werner, I am sorry I shall ask you again to hold my check for a further date. I am not through with the work on the figure and can not secure from my client but small payment just to get along - I shall write you as early I will receive a larger sum and be able to take care of this check. I hope this will not inconvenience you - I am not doing anything here beside working hard at sculpture. Even I am keeping away from gardening. I hope New York is not so hot at present . Forward to see. I am sincerely," and signed, "G. Lachaise"
Lachaise wrote this letter several months after his exhibit at the Art Institute of Chicago, featuring his original sculpture (Catalogue: Original Sculpture by Gaston Lachaise, Dec. 22  - January 26, 1926). In the year of this letter, he completed his bronze sculpure, "Standing Woman, with pleated skirt." His scuptures, large and small, reside in many museums and his works continue to be exhibited.
