CT ES January 28, 1931

Dear Mr. Sheffield,

We have just acquired two extremely important 18th century English portraits which we would like to have the pleasure of showing you. One is the famous portrait of Comte de Chamcenetz by Gainsborough which comes from the celebrated
Sackville Collection at Knole, and the other is the portrait
of Richard Cumberland, the dramatist, by Romney.

Both these pictures are now in our galleries, and we should be very pleased to show them to you at any time you could conveniently call.

Very truly yours,

(Clyfford Trevor)

James R. Sheffield, Esq.,
45 East 67th Street,
New York City.
