Miss Mabel Choate,
8 East 63rd St.,
New York City.

Dear Miss Choate,

I wish to thank you for your very courteous reply to my letter of March 18th and I am sorry that you are not contemplating going to Paris this year, as I am sure you would very much have enjoyed seeing the Ancien Palais Sagan.

By the bye, I would like to take this opportunity of calling your attention to a very interesting exhibition of modern French Art which we are now holding in our galleries. It is under official French Government patronage, and there are a number of things in it which I am sure would more than interest you, including some superb glassware by Marinot, and some charming bronzes by Bugatti, Pompon, Desbois and Dalou.

Hoping that you will be able to find time to call in here before the exhibition closes,

Believe me to be,
Yours sincerely,
