Dear Mr. Nishimura,

Last year, in August, I forwarded to you a color transparency of my painting

[[indented]]Seurat, [[underline]]La Tour Eiffel[[/underline]]

which you duly returned.

I was under the impression that you intended sending me a copy of the new book you were going to publish, and in which this painting was to be reproduced.

The publishing, of course, may have been delayed, and I am just writing to say that I would greatly enjoy this second book, which I feel certain is going to be as impressive and beautiful as the first one you put out a couple of years ago.

I would be grateful for a word from youoon this topic, and with appreciation of your courtesy,

[[far indented]]Yours very sincerely,

[[far indented]]Germain Seligman
