Dear Mrs. Kelley,

I am taking the liberty of writing you these few lines to ask you whether you would have time some day in the near future to come in to see a very important painting by RONNEY which we have just acquired. It is the same sized picture as the RAEBURN you were looking at last year, but it is a portrait of a good looking woman.

I hope you will be able to find time to come in here some time before the end of the month as I am shortly sailing for Europe and would like to have the pleasure of seeing you before I leave.

In the meanwhile, with my kindest regards to Mr. Kelley and yourself, believe me to be 

Yours sincerely,

Mrs. Cornelius Kelley,
907 Fifth Avenue,
New York City.

April 5th, 1930.
