April 13th., 1944.

To the Executors of the
Estate of Mrs. William O. Goodman, 
1355 N. Astor Street, 
Chicago, Ill.

Though, unfortunately, I never had an opportunity of being able to call on Mr. or Mrs. William O. Goodman when I was in Chicago, I often heard of their collection of modern French paintings. 

I would be very much interested to hear from you as to whether you contemplate parting with some of these paintings, and in this event I would gladly go to Chicago to discuss the matter with you. 

Yours very truly, 
(Germain Seligmann)
