Dear Miss Choate:

As we have just acquired three absolutely perfect paintings by Vuillard, the quality of which can only be compared to the work you own, I thought I would write these lines to ask you to come in to see them.

As every time the name of Vuillard is mentioned in America, your picture is always mentioned, I feel quite sure that you will be delighted to see the ones I am referring to. They are of the same period as yours, that is to say of the rarest series.

Hoping to have the privilege of receiving your visit, and looking forward to the pleasure of seeing you,

Please believe me to be

Yours respectfully,

(C. M. de Hauke)
