Dear Mr. Hickox:

When we went, the other day, to look at that collection of paintings on Park Avenue, I was very much impressed by the great appreciation and understanding you showed when you picked out what were, undoubtedly, the three best pictures in the collection, amongst them two which were at first glance rather difficult to understand.

It, therefore, occurred to me to ask you to stop in at our galleries to see a painting we have which is one of the greatest and rarest in the world.

This little Italian portrait I know you will enjoy seeing.

Kindly believe me,

Yours sincerely,

(Rene Seligmann)
