Dear Mrs. Parker:

Thank you for the prompt return of the Loan Authorization Form for the painting, "London Ruins, Spiral Staircase", by Cleve Gray, which was included in the "1949 CORCORAN BIENNIAL". We are delighted to learn that we may have this painting for tour.

As it is necessary for us to have a signed Authorization Form to send to the Corcoran Gallery, I am enclosing another one and ask that you kindly sign and return this to us as soon as possible.

With kindest regards, I am

Sincerely yours,
