Dear Mr. Garbaty:

May I start these lines by thanking you anew for your most pleasant welcome when I called on you last week.

To my regret I have met with no success as in spite of my salesmanship, which evidently must be very poor, my client remained set on having a pair of Still Life paintings.

As per your request and in accordance with m promise I am returning you herein the photographs (three) of the three paintings you were good enough to entrust to me.

Looking forward to having soon again I hope an opportunity of seeing you, and with renewed thanks,

Yours very sincerely,

Eugene L. Garbaty, Esq.

Yours very sincerely
