Jacques Seligmann & Co. Inc.
3 East 51st Street 
New York City

Dear Mr. Seligmann:

I was very happy to hear from you again, and wish to ask your pardon for not answering immediately, but the letter was mislaid.

I do hope to have the pleasure of meeting you again. I have not been in New York for almost a year, business not warranting it. There has been very little doing in the art line in Detroit. No doubt you have read of the sit-down strikes in the automobile plants and other like manufacturing companies. We have finally gotten rid of one of Mr. Roosevelt's dear friends and gotten a real man in the Governor's chair. 

I hope to be in New York before very long, and certainly will look forward to seeing you and talking things over.

Sincerely yours,
