[[preprinted]] [[underline]]"The Indispensable Art Magazine"[[/underline]] New York Paris Editorial Offices THE ART DIGEST HOPEWELL, NEW JERSEY U. S. A. [[/preprinted]] ^[[checkmark]] August 1, 1928. Jacques Seligmann & Co., Inc., 3 East 51st. St., New York, N. Y. [[stamp]]AUG 3 '28[[/stamp]] Dear Sirs: We will greatly appreciate it if you will send us a list of persons, selected from your own mailing list, who might be interested in subscribing to The Art Digest. This favor will be of the greatest value to us. The list will be kept confidential, will never be allowed to leave our possession, and will be used for no other purpose than to promote the circulation of the magazine. The Art Digest will start its third year in October, and will mark the event by a campaign to obtain another 10,000 subscribers. The magazine, as you know, has had an almost phenomenal success because it has supplied a hitherto unfilled need in American journalism, that of presenting an unbiased and full review of news and opinion in the world of art. Already, we feel, The Art Digest has achieved much in promoting art interest and art understanding in America, and yet it has only made a beginning of the work it can accomplish in the years to come. We believe that, for this reason, we can rely on your full co-operation. We wish to compile immediately, for use in October, a list of 50,000 prospective subscribers. Your compliance with our request for a list of names will help us greatly. Sincerely, [[signed]]Peyton Boswell[[/signed]] President and Editor, THE ART DIGEST, Inc. PB/HC
