Hotel MEURICE

PARIS, Thursday morning


My dear Mr. SELIGMANN

In giving you rendez-vous this morning I had completely overlooked the fact that Thursday is the day off school of my little girls and that I had promised to take them to Saint-CLOUD to see the tennis, so I trust you will forgive me for sending you workd [[word]] at this late hour.

However it seems to me the chief point for us to decide is as to whom to send the table and BOILLY to AMERICA. Personally I don't believe our present very Conservative Congress will pass any such damn fool laws as to levy tribute on works of art.

However your judgement in the matter may be better than mine.

The next point is that these two articles will cost me in NEW YORK (delivered)- Third is, as to the manner of payment of same.

Il [[If]] you will be kind enough to give me your views on these three points, I will be greatly obliged.

Am just in receipt of a letter from the Senator in which he asks me to present you his regards

Very truly

(s) Charles W. CLARK
