Hotel du Pont, Saint-Prest, France

Lowry stayed at the Hotel du Pont, Saint-Prest with Maurice Sachs and Henry Wibbels in May 1934. In an unpublished letter written from the hotel to Jan referenced by Gordon Bowker, Lowry wrote to her describing that the Hotel du Pont was the perfect place for them to live. However, he also stated things were not working out as on of his companions was romancing the gardener, the other pursuing an oboe player (Gordon Bowker Pursued By Furies Pg. 179). He also wrote to Sylvia Beach from the hotel apologising for not paying for a book.
