January 23rd, 1931.

Dear Mrs. Kelley,

I am writing you these few lines to ask you whether you would have time to call in here on [[one]] day in the near future, as I would like to show you two extremely interesting 18th Century portraits which we have just acquired. One is the famous portrait of Count Champcenetz by GAINSBOROUGH, which comes from the Sackville Collection at Knole, England, and the other the portrait of Richard Cumberland, the dramatist, by GEORGE ROMNEY.

I would also like to tell you that we now have a very important Modern Department in our firm, and we handle nearly all the great modern painters, including, of course, the French Impressionists.

I should, therefore, very much like to have the pleasure of showing you these things at some time when you could conveniently call in.

In the meanwhile, looking forward to the pleasure of seeing you and with my kindest regards to Mr. Kelly and yourself, believe me to be 

Yours very sincerely,

(Clyfford Trevor)
Mrs. Cornelius Kelley,
