I plan to be in town until Friday night and take the paintings back with me to New York, but should it be agreeable to you - and this without any obligation on your part - I would be delighted to hang these pictures in your home to give you an opportunity to look at them at leisure, as I understand that you are extremely busy these days. The museum could then later on ship them to us to New York.

I hope you do not mind my writing you this lengthy letter, for which I apologize, but as I said before, the pictures are at such reasonable prices that I don't want not to give you the opportunity of considering them as I have heard that you liked them.

I am sorry not to have a chance to see you on the occasion of this trip, and with my kindest regards to Mrs. Ford, kindly believe me.

Sincerely yours,
