July 1st., 1939.

Dear Phyllis:

Many thanks for your lines of June 28th.

I feel the same way you do, that it would be foolish to try and rush the deal with the Gothic tapestry if it were to lead to a definite "no".

As I am sailing next week, I am leaving instructions with my office so that you can keep the tapestry a while longer.

I wrote you about the selling price of $7,500., on May 22nd., and in case of sale there would of course be a 10% fee in it for you.

With best regards,

Yours very sincerely, 

(Germain Séligmann)
