Mrs. Walter S. Brewster,
232 E. Walton Pl., 
Chicago, Ill.

Dear Madam:

During the month of January, we are going to have an exhibition at the Art Institute which will include early Limoges Enamels, Italian Majolicas, Ivories and Italian Bronzes. 

On several occasions, when I was in Chicago, I tried to reach you, having often heard of your beautiful home and of your interest for art objects.

I would consider it a great privilege if you would spare a few moments to come and see the exhibition, and if you would allow me to take you to show it to you myself. I will take the liberty to call you up to find out if you will be kind enough to make an appointment with me.

With best regards,

Pray believe me,

Yours very sincerely,
