Dear Germain:

I didn't expect to bother you so soon with business but I have just had an inquiry about an inexpensive Gothic tapestry.  It may not amount to anything--those things often peter out as you know; but I did think it was worth asking if you happened to have any unimportant piece in stock of decorative value of a late Gothic type which could be sold around $7,500 or $8,000.  It should be horizontal in format preferably, 6 to 8 feet high, and about 8 or 9 feet wide.
 
If you haven't anything, don't waste your valuable time answering me; but if you should have, a photograph would help. 

Looking forward to seeing you Wednesday,

Sincerly,

Phyllis
