My dear Mr. Kelly,

Supplementing our telephone conversation of this morning, I wish to confirm to you that we have requested our truckmen, Messrs. W.J.Brown, call for the pictures that are to be returned to us tomorrow Saturday in time for delivery to our Gallery late that afternoon. These pictures are detailed on the list attached.

The following pictures we note are being retained by you:

[[underlined]] #M3445 [[/underlined]] painting by BONNARD entitled "Paysage du Midi", in which Mr. Baum, art critic is endeavoring to interest some friend of his.

Other than these works, if there is anything else that you feel you wish to retain, it would be entirely agreeable to us. Perhaps you might care to keep the COUTURE a few days longer in case Mr. McFadden returns with his mother, who might possibly share the young man's
