Dear Mr. Leichti:

I am returning to you herewith by messenger the Eucharistic Dove which I would like you to have properly packed and shipped to

Seymour Knox, Esq.,
Marine Trust  Co. Building,
Buffalo, N.Y.

I have advised Mr. Knox that this dove will be sent to him to be presented to the Albright Art Gallery, Buffalo, N.Y. as a gift from me.

For shipping and insurance purposes, I believe that the value of $2200. (which was the amount it was covered for by Lloyds) will be sufficient and if you will send me a bill for the packing and shipping charges, I shall reimburse you.

Yours sincerely,
[[signature]] John M Schiff [[/signature]]
