October 20th, 1933.

Grand Central Art Galleries
15 Vanderbilt Avenue,
New York City.

Attention Mr. Erwin S. Barrie.

Dear Sirs: 

We have received your letter of October 19th and referred it to our gentlemen, none of whom had any knowledge of the matter you refer to.

Upon further examination it turns out that the valet of our Mr. Germain Seligmann had addressed said request to you entirely on his own account and had he asked us, we would not have allowed him to do it, and your refusing the request was, therefore, quite correct.  In any case, this matter has nothing to do with our firm.

We quite appreciate your remark that you wish to be neighborly and can assure you that we feel exactly the same way towards you.

Thanking you for calling this matter to our attention,

Sincerely yours,
