GH/HW.

9th March, 1939.

Dear Mr. Seligmann,

Thank you very much for your letter of March 2nd and for your kind instructions with regard to the Tapestries. I am handing them to Chenue at once and will give him every assistance that I can. I am advising him that he should arrange their insurance in transit to your premises, as our insurance here will no longer cover the Tapestries once they are removed.

I am so very sorry that we have been unsuccessful in dealing with them, but conditions are most difficult as you know over here in the Tapestry market, and I really do not know any other private buyer who would be likely to be interested at a serious price at the present time other than the two or three people with whom I have been in contact.

I am indeed grateful to you for all the kind help you have given me.

Yours sincerely,

[[signed]] Gordon Hannen [[/signed]]
