Mr. Robert M. Levy,
c/o Jacques Seligman & Co.,
3 E. 51st Street,
New York, New York.

Dear Bob:

The Degas arrived yesterday with a broken glass. I am happy to tell you that the picture was not damaged in any way.

Due to the ungainliness of the frame it is rather hard for us to make up our minds if we like it in the place which we had in mind for it.

I notice from your letter that you intend to give me a ring next week. I suggest that you do so toward the end of the week as I am going to be in and out a great deal until that time.

If we decide to return the picture please let me know what we should do about the broken glass and through whom it should be returned.

We have been having a bit of real summer and it has given everyone a terrible case of Spring Fever. I do hope that you and Helen both have been well.

With best regards

Yours sincerely,

P.S. If you are serious about us buying a picture, go to that place on Fifth Avenue where they have the wonderful pencil sharpeners.
