Dear Phyllis: 

In answer to your letter of May 18th., and following our telephone conversation, I take pleasure in sending you herein, a photograph of a late Gothic tapestry of which the dimensions are 59-1/2" x 59-3/4".

Our selling price is Seven thousand Five hundred Dollars.

Hoping against hope that you will be able to do something with this tapestry and looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday, I am,

Yours very sincerely,

(Germain Séligmann)
