October 26, 1955 Dear Mr. Speelman: These are just a few lines to inquire whether you could now set a definite date for the shipment to me of the painting by Terbruggen I purchased from you a few weeks ago. You thought you would be in a position to air ship it by the end of this month, and the New York season being so very short, I am of course anxious to have it at your earliest convenience. May I also remind you of your kind promise to indicate on your invoice every available data and documentation you may have in connection with the painting. Looking forward to hearing from you. Sincerely yours, Germain Seligman Edward Speelman Esq., Empire House, 175 Picadilly, London, W.1.
