of letter which Mr. Germain Seligmann
wrote by hand.


My dear Miss. Greene - 

It is indeed a great disappointment for me not to have the pleasure of seeing you this evening. I was so much looking forward to having your company for a few hours.

I hope you will be kind enough and give me another opportunity to see you before I return to Europe. Won't you come in to look at the gold woven tapestries I told you about - I feel sure you will find them superb!

A bientot,

Yours very sincerely,



Miss. Belle da Costa Greene,
33 East 36th St.,
New York, N.Y.
