[[underlined]] Attention of Miss Christian [[/underlined]]

Dear Miss Christian:

In reference to a conversation over the telephone with your secretary relating to your inquiry about a Louis XV writing desk, I had already given you the verbal information about it yesterday.

However, I find that we are in possession of a photograph of this desk which I am sending you herewith enclosed as it, no doubt, will give you a far better idea of the object. You will find the exact measurements on the back of the photograph, and I understand they are just what you are looking for.

The table came from the collection of the late Duchess d'Uz├Ęs. As I told your secretary, our selling price is $3,800.00 but I have made the price of $3,000.00 net to us to your firm.

I would be very happy to show you the original any time convenient to you, and if there is any way in which I can collaborate with you, please do not hesitate to let me know.

I trust this will be satisfactory.

Believe me to be

Faithfully yours,

(R.H. Waegen)
