WILLIAM SUHR 50 EAST 50TH STREET NEW YORK January 17, 1940 Jacque Seligmann & Co. 3 East 51st Street New York, N.Y. My dear Mr. Seligmann: In answer to your question regarding the cradling of the Francia, I would like to say that at the present there seems to be no need for it. The panel has not warped any more since the frame was adjusted to the curvature, and as long as there is no further change in the panel, I would prefer to leave it alone instead of exposing the inner fibre of the wood anew to our climate. You understand, of course, that in cradling a panel the outer layer is shaved off, thus removing the part that has become somewhat acclimatized. Sincerely yours, [[Signed]] William Suhr
