Following my letter of September 19, 1947, I am pleased to enclose herein the requested affidavit (in duplicate), with respect to the purchases made through my firm from the Estate of Clarence H. Mackay, duly signed, witnessed, and legalized by the Swiss Consulate in New York.

Trusting that the enclosures will serve your purpose,

Very sincerely yours,
