Dear Mr. Cohen,

Here is the information given to me today by Richard Serra:

1) The shipment will be arriving on the Euro Lines Ioannis Sophirakis into the Port of Newark.

2) The shipment leaves Antwerp, Belgium on Wednesday August 12, 1987 with an estimated time of arrival 15 days later.

3) The ship will dock at the Maher Terminal in the Port of Newark.

Ray LaChapelle will handle the transportation of the artwork from Newark to its installation here at the gallery. Richard would like to make sure beforehand that they will be able to remove the sculpture from the ship (2 plates at 25 tons each). If not we will have to notify Mr. LaChapelle.

Richard Serra can be reached at (902) 258-2257. Ray LaChapelle & Sons can be reached at (718) 383-3061.
