Robert H. Tannahill, Esq.,
Detroit Institute of the Arts,
Detroit, Mich.
Dear Mr. Tannahill,
Referring to your kind visit here the other day, I am writing you these few lines to tell you that we have just heard from Paris that the gothic ivory about which you were inquiring has been shipped and will be here some time next week. We would like to know at your convenience if you need this for your exhibition of Gothic art at the Detroit Museum and at the same time you might let us know whether you need the large Gothic wood carving and the reliquary. As I told you, we shall be very pleased to lend you any or all of these three objects.
Therefore, awaiting the favor of your reply, believe us to be
Very truly yours,
