My dear Trevor:

Thanks for your letter of May 11 with the photograph of Redon, which I know is a very fine example; but it is too expensive for us to handle.

We would like to have the water color by Segonzac,and the pair of portraits by Chinnery. Will you have these sent to us immediately?

I am so glad that you understand my advising you about Mr. Sachs' action regarding Mr. McCormick.

The Institute Show is simply marvelous; it is one of the best that we have ever seen.

I am so sorry to bring this letter to a short end but must rush as there is a client in the galleries now.

You write of the Chinnerys as having come directly from the family. What family do youmean? Do you mean Chinnery's family, or whose family, as I don't want to misquote and be found in error.

Will you advise us and send us photographs if you have any other Moderns that you think would be interesting to us; but of course, under present conditions, we will have to sell pictures at very close margins if we have the opportunity & costs must not be large.

With our kindest regards to you all,

Yours sincerely,

Mr. Clyfford Trevor
