Dear Mr. Berwind:

I would like very much to show you two pictures which I think you would enjoy seeing - one is a most beautiful portrait of a very charming young girl by Vigée Le Brun, the other one is a very interesting portrait by Fragonard, representing the Comte de la Bretèche, brother of the Abbé de Saint Non.

I hope you will have a few moments in the near future to come in and see these pictures. It would give me great pleasure to have this opportunity of seeing you again.

Trusting these lines will find you in good health, kindly believe me

Yours sincerely, 

(René Seligmann)
