Dear Sir,

Allow to a very young admirer of yours to have the audacity in asking your autograph. I would be too happy possessing your writing in my collection where I have nearly all the writings of the great of our days.

I hope you will not reject my humble prayer in giving me your writing, it will be the greatest honour for me always, to possess it.

I remain yours truly | Egon Eros [signature]
