June 28th., 1943.

Dear Mr. Dodge:

Your Postal Card reached me a few minutes ago and I hasten to tell you how pleased I am that Dr. Valentiner intends publishing the PICASSO in his "Art Quarterly" as I realize how much it will mean to Mrs. Hyde.

I am indeed disappointed not to be able to give you any further data on the painting than what was included on the invoice, but as this document is probably not in your possession, I am enclosing herein a copy of the description and data, which I know you will find very meager.

Now, I am also adding a few lines, as when you write "...relationship to other similar works..etc." you may refer to something of this sort.  I hope that this will be of some help to you, though you may want to treat this subject along entirely different lines.

I intend remaining in New York until July 15th., and am wondering whether I shall have the pleasure of seeing you back here before then.

With kind thoughts,

Yours very sincerely,

Joseph J. Dodge, Esq.,
147 Bay Street,
Glens Falls, N.Y.
