of showing the Tapestries to any casual buyer since last Summer as I do not wish the impression to circulate in the Art markets that the Tapestries are being hawked.

At the present moment markets are quiet in this country due I think largely to the shadow of the Budget, which is likely to be presented on or about the 17th of April next. There is generally in the country a somewhat gloomy anticipation of this event, but if the worst fears prove to be unfounded when the Budget has been presented, I think that we can look forward to a greater buoyancy in Trade.

I shall be happy to carry out any instructions with regard to the Tapestries that you may give me on Mr. Schiff's behalf, and in the meantime I will keep my eyes open for any reasonable opportunity of negotiating them.

Yours sincerely,
