CT ES    October 31, 1930

Dear Junior,

In answer to your letter of the 28th inst., I want to thank you for agreeing to lend your picture for the exhibition. I know that Harrington MANN will be delighted to have it, because he particularly asked me to get in touch with you about it.

Now, as regards your "hard boiled" conditions, we will be pleased to agree to the terms of your letter, and the picture will be covered by our All Risks Art Policy from the time it leaves your house until it is delivered back to you.

Curiously enough, while I was dictating this letter, Mr. Siple called in here and as we do not know anyone in Cincinnati to pack the picture, he kindly offered to have this done at the Museum, and therefore, I would ask you to please leave instructions to deliver the picture to someone that Mr. Siple will send up for it, and it will be taken to the museum and packed and forwarded directly to us. When we are through with it, we are going to send it back to the Museum and Mr. Siple will have it unpacked and delivered to you.  I trust that this will be quite satisfactory.

By the bye, there is a possibility of my coming out to Cincinnati myself in the near future, but before I do so, I shall drop you a line.

In the meanwhile, with my kindest regards to Dorette and yourself, believe me to be

Yours very sincerely,

Julius Fleischmann, Esq.,
419 Plum Street,
Cincinnati, Ohio.
