Dear Madam,

We plan to hold in our Galleries at the above address, during the month of November, a very interesting exhibition of the works of the great French artist, Odilon REDON.

In order to make this manifestation as complete as possible, we are anxious to secure from private collections and museums, the most representative examples of this artist's work, and hope that you will kindly permit us to include the pictures by this artist that you may have in your collection.

As we are anxious to know just what pictures we can expect to hang in this exhibition, will you please inform us at your earliest convenience if we may borrow one or more examples from your collection.

Of course, the very best care will be taken of these pictures and full insurance coverage will be placed on every one. At the close of the exhibition all works will be promptly returned to the owners.

Trusting that you will favor us with an early reply, please believe us to be

Respectfully yours

de HAUKE & Co. Inc.
