Dear T.,

Herewith you will find copy of my letter addressed to Mr. Namy in connection with the translation of the [[underlined]] rococo [[underlined]] article, which I assume you will find self-explanatory - particularly as regards the mailing of the article to him on July 15th. 

May 30, 1973

Many thanks for your log, pages 7 and 8, and for the clippings included. 

Herewith you will find copy of my letter to Darryl E. Isley. I do hope you will approve of it. As you can readily imagine, your cable was quite a shock to me. 

MRS. MOULTON. How strange to have found this note of the genealogy of the family enclosed in a second-hand copy of Merchants of Art. We will keep this copy for future assignment. 

MR. ROBBINS. Do tell him that I am under the impression that Baron Albert de Rothschild belongs to the German branch, though I am far from sure of this. If it is so, they were called Barons de Goldschmidt-Rothschild - also, if correct, they certainly had some important paintings which should be quite valuable. 

DELCAILLE. No answer needed. 

FOR MRS. COONEY. Please thank her for the photostats of the mutilated visiting cards which are all right. I am sorry to say, however, that in spite of further hours spent by Ethlyne, nothing new has been discovered so far. 

As regards the drawing by Charles Meynier I wrote about previously, we should use the English title, of course, which should be "Cicero pleading the cause of Ligarius".

MR. PORJES. Please tell him that I shall write shortly about several items, and tell him also that Mr. Jacques Saillot is no longer in charge of our accounts at the Paris bank. They are now in the hands of Mr. Wendell L. Nichols, Assistant Vice President.
