CT ES February 15, 1929 Dear mrs. Kelley, I just returned to New York, and I am writing you these few lines to tell you that we have recently received from Europe several things which I think would more than interest you. One is a very important portrait of a boy by Sir Henry RAEBURN, probably one of the most interesting pictures by this Master that has come to New York in many years. The second painting is a very charming and fully recorded work by George MORLAND, and the other item I would like you to see is a very beautiful little Louis XV marquetry table just about the type of thing you were inquiring for the last time you were here. Of course, we have a number of other new things that you have not seen, but I thought that these three pieces in particular might be something you could use. Looking forward therefore to the pleasure of seeing you shortly, and trusting that Mr. Kelley and yourself are well, believe me to be Yours sincerely, Mrs. Cornelius F. Kelley 907 Fifth Avenue, New York City.
