Dear Mr. McCormick,

Though I have not had the pleasure of seeing you in a very long time, I am sending you these lines to inquire whether you are in Chicago and will remain there for the coming few days.

This inquiry is for the purpose of giving a letter of introduction to a friend of mine - a French engineer who also has been very successful in this country with industrial designing, and who, I understand, has a proposition to submit to you which should be of great interest to "International Harvester".

Were you to be in Chicago, he would go there to call on you in order to propose his plan.

Trusting you are enjoying good health, and with my best regards, I am 

Yours sincerely,

(Germain Séligmann)

Harold F. McCormick, Esq.,
675 North Rush Street,
Chicago, Illinois.
