Dear Mr. Sonnenberg:

How very disappointed I was to hear that I had missed your visit and this just by a very few minutes. At the time you called I was engaged with an out-of-town museum director who was in New York but for a few hours and who had made this special appointment with me.

I do hope you enjoyed the exhibition which, as you will have noticed, has already been quite successful; but I would have liked to call your attention specifically to three or four of the drawings which are truly of capital importance.

Maybe, and I do hope so, you will have a few more free moments to drop in again; the moreso as there are two small very delightful paintings it would give me pleasure to show you.

With personal regards,

Sincerely yours,


Germain Seligman

Mr. Benjamin Sonnenberg
