Dear Anna:

I had a very nice letter from Mrs. Standish dated September 29th on your behalf, and I am terribly sorry to hear that you are still doctoring. I sincerely hope that it is nothing serious and that you are well on the way to recovery.

I saw this morning our young man I had sent to Detroit to deliver the various items which you had purchased from us this summer, as well as the terra-cotta group by Marin which we bought for you at the Mortimer L. Schiff Sale in London. I hope you received everything in good order and fully enjoy your purchases to your entire satisfaction.

With the opportunity of these lines, allow me to submit to you the invoice for the various items which you purchased from our Paris office, as well as the ones for the commission and expenses in connection with the Marin group. I trust you will find everything satisfactory. Should, however, there be anything not clear to you, please do not hesitate to let me know.

I hope I shall have the pleasure of seeing you soon in New York on your annual shopping seance.

Isn't it wonderful the way the European situation has cleared up and that one can breath freely again. Since the turn in the political situation, New York really has taken on quite a gay face.

In the meantime, many good wishes and kindest personal regards.

Always faithfully,

(R. H. Waegen)
