Dear Mrs. Hickox,

When I had the pleasure of seeing you a little while ago, I told you of a French Primitive I had here which was under consideration by a Museum, and which I would like to show you on account of its artistic merits.

The purchase has been actually consummated by this museum and before I ship it, it would afford me much pleasure to show the painting to you. I will not be able to keep it here very long, and therefore would be greatly obliged if you and Mr. Hickox could come in before Tuesday next.

Looking forward to having the pleasure of seeing you both again,

I remain

Yours very sincerely,

(Germain Séligmann)

Mrs. Charles V. Hickox,
