Dear Mr. Hickox:

A private collection consisting of a 
very important group of paintings has been proposed
to us for sale, most of them having the best 
possible origin.

I have been compelled to promise to use
the utmost discretion in the whole matter but
would advise nevertheless very much like to talk to 
you about it.

Should you be interested in purchasing 
such a group, I would gladly go to your office
or receive your visit here in order to give
you further details. 

Please remember me to Mrs. Hickox, and in the meantime,

Very sincerely yours,

(Georges E. Seligmann)
