Mr. E. Wenzel,
1476 Lexington Avenue,
New York City.

My dear Mr. Wenzel:-

Have just been looking at the photo of the pottery vessel that you were kind enough to leave with us for our inspection. When you were here you said that you would endeavor to find out whether the owner would be willing to let us have the specimen for the Museum. We are still interested in the matter and, should you be unwilling to approach the owner with this and in view I hope you may care to let us have his name and address so that we cin [[can]] endeavor to get the jar so that it may be preserved in a Museum where it can be studied and where it will serve a real purpose. 

Thanking you for your kindness in bringing this matter to our attention and in advance for whatever you may care to do in furthering our interests, I am,

Sincerely yours,
George Pepper
