Chester H. Johnson, Esq.,
410 South Michigan Avenue,
Chicago, Illinois.

Dear Johnson:

In answer to your letter of the 2nd inst. we just want to tell you that we will be very pleased to cooperate with you in your Exhibition as far as we possibly can.

First of all, however, I want to tell you that we have no Spanish pictures, so that eliminates that item, and as regards the Modern Pictures, I am sorry to say that we have sent over to Paris the greater part of our collection, but we will be pleased to let you have a very fine REDON Pastel and a large SEGONZAC.  We would likewise be glad to send you two very nice CHINNERYs.

If you would care to have these pictures, kindly let us know and we will send them on to you with full particulars.

In the meanwhile, with my kindest regards to Quest and yourself, believe me to be

Yours sincerely,


(Clyfford Trevor)
