Paris, June 2nd. 1927.

Dear Mr. Tannahill,
Many thanks for your letter enclosing Mrs. Barbour's cheque.

According to your instructions, we are delivering the table to Davies, Turner & Co. 23, rue Baudin, Paris, and have sent the receipt for the cheque to 15 Lathbury Road, Oxford, England.

By the bye, it just occurs to me that you mentioned that you were interested in gothic ivories. If you have the time to come in here again before you leave, I would very much like to show you several very fine XIVth century ivories which we have here and which you have not seen. As a matter of fact, we have some very rare pieces of that period, and I therefore hope to have the privileve of showing them to you.

In the meanwhile, thanking you for your visit,

Believe me to be,
Yours very sincerely,
Jacques Seligmann & Fils,
Germain Seligmann & Cie. Succs.,


Robert H. Tannahill, Esq.,
Le Bristol,
112, Faubourg Saint Honoré,
PARIS. Sème.
