Dear Mrs. Douglas,

Remembering the charming little PICASSO you bought from us a few years ago through my late cousin, René Seligmann, I thought of writing you about a small  head I have just purchased by the same artist.

It is an ink-wash and really treated in an exceedingly witth manner- more like a caricature. May I also add that it is very inexpensive. I feel that in any case you would enjoy looking at it and indeed it would give me such pleasure to have an opportunity of seeing you again.

Yours very sincerely,

(Carmain Séligmann)
