Mrs Hugh DILLMAN        F°2

a very well known French painter who is represented in the Luxembourg, and who has a very important canvas at the Salon this year.

Apart from anything else, I would very much like to show you an extremely important painting by Sir Joshua REYNOLDS, and also a very wonderful 18th century french table which is believed to have been made specially for Marie Antoinette

We have a small place at 9 rue de la Faix, but our main establishment is situated at 57 rue Saint-Dominique, on the other side of the River, just behind the House of Deputies.

Hoping to be favoured with yours and Mr DILLMAN’S visit,

Believe me to be,
Yours very truly,
