Monsieur Jacques SELIGMANN
57, Rue Saint-Dominique

My dear Mr. SELIGMANN,

I acknowledge receipt of your letters of the 2nd and 3rd inst. which I have read with interest and which I thoroughly understand. I will authorize you to send the articles as quickly as possible to your agents in the United States, to be held by them subject to my instructions when I return there this Fall, and I will exercise one of the two methods of payment proposed by you, or possibly a compromise between the two, and will advise you of this within a few days. 

Mrs. W. K. VANDERBILT, Jr. is here and is very anxious to see some of your art treasures. I suggested that if it is convenient for you, I would take her and Mrs. CLARK over next Thursday, the 9th inst., at 11 o'clock. If this is quite agreeable to you, will you telephone to this effect to the Meurice Hotel.

With best personal regards

Sincerely yours,

(s( for Chas W. CLARK
