Dear Mr. Newberry:

How very nice it was to have seen you again, looking so well, after so many years, for it is a long time indeed since I have had the pleasure of your visit.

I was sorry that, due to a previous appointment, I was not able to spend more time in your company and hope you understood my predicament.

Mrs. T. D. Parker conveyed your message that you would give me a ring to let me know when it would be convenient to have me drop in on you, and I am much looking forward to this opportunity.

Herewith you will find my firm's invoice covering your purchase of the elegant drawing by: 

WATTEAU de LILLE
"Portrait of a Young Man"

in the amount of $250 (two-hundred and fifty).
plus 3% sales tax.
This drawing will be delivered to you at the close of our Exhibition in the first days of next week.

With personal regards, 

Sincerely yours,

Germain Seligman
