Dear Mr. Bonnier:

The request of the British Broadcasting Corporation about which you will find their letter herewith enclosed, gives me a pleasant opportunity to write to you.  May I express the hope that these lines will find Mrs. Bonnier and you in good health and enjoying the Seurat drawing "La Jambe" to which this correspondance refers.

Upon the request of the British Broadcasting Corporation for a print of your drawing, I answered them that the copyright for such a reproduction no longer belonged to me; hence this correspondance. Were you to agree to their proposition, do let me know accordingly, and I will be happy to forward a print to London.

By the same token, do advise me whether it should be represented as "private collection" IE: "anonymous" or whether you wish to have your name mentioned in connection therewith.

With all good wishes and in the hope of having the pleasure of seeing you both again in the not too distant future,

Sincerely yours,

Germain Seligman
