Gentlemen: In re yours of the 10th. You state that you wish us to register the two frames of the paintings that are going from your galleries to the Musee de L'Orangerie in Paris. This will entail a great deal of trouble, breaking open the cases and having Customs repack them, which might not be satisfactory. Under Section 10661 on procedure on the return of any goods exported for exhibition purposes there is no necessity of registering the frames. We will have our agent in Paris see to it that the museum gives us the proper invoice stating that the paintings and frames were received, and returned in the same condition after the exhibition. This will be sufficient information to avoid the assessment of duty and the unnecessary expense and danger of having the cases badly repacked. Very truly yours, F. L. KRAEMER & CO. [[signature]] F.L.
