Mrs. Edouard Jonas, 
998 Fifth Avenue, 
New York City. 

Dear Madam: 

We just received a cablegram from Messrs. Jacques Seligmann & Fils, Paris, stating that the FRAGONARD drawing "The Good Mother" which you lent to the FRAGONARD Exhibition and insured yourself for the sum of Fourteen Thousand Dollars ($14,000) will be returned to New York per SS "Ile de France" sailing June 16th for delivery to you. 

We advise you of the above so that you can promptly notify your insurance company. 

Very truly yours,
