New York, N.Y. New York, N.Y. 1 March 16th, 1972 Gentlemen; The Louvre Museum in Paris advises me that you will be uncharge of picking up the works of art destined to an exhibition they are organizing, "L'Ecole de Fontainebleau". Among these times is a drawing by MAITRE DE FLORE - "Procris et Cephale" from my private collection. You would oblige me by letting me know whether you have already set a date for collecting these works of art and whether this date will be after Labor Day. If so, in view of my absence from New York I would leave this drawing with my galleries, at the above address, where you could call for it after Labor Day On the other hand were the date for pick-up not yet set, and were there a possibility of it being during August or early September, you would oblige me by calling for this drawing at my Galleries before July 22nd, date at which my galleries will close and not re-open until after Labor Day. You would oblige me by posting me on the topic, enabling me thus to take the necessary steps. Yours very sincerely, Germain Seligman W.R. Keating & Co. 90 Broad Street New York, N.Y. 10004 ^[[initials]]
