If the letters cited under DATE all refer to the same canvas, then it showed 'une tranchée de chemin de fer' (a railway cutting). 4
There is a railway cutting in the middle distance in A White Note [YMSM 044], but it could hardly be considered the principal subject of the painting.
This was painted in Guéthary, Basses-Pyrénées, and may have shown a landscape there, but it could possibly have included a figure or figures.
