October 20th, 1939

Dear Mr. Richardson:

I haven't seen you in a very long time nor have I heard from you.

I recently returned from Europe and wanted to let you know that I was in this country with the hope that should you and Mrs. Richardson come to New York, you wouldn't fail to let me know.

I became aware sometime ago that there is a gentlemen in your city by the name of Mr. Edmund Delbos who gave a painting to your Museum. Could you tell me a little about him as a prospect for us?

I do not know if I shall be going to Detroit this winter, but if I do, naturally, won't fail to let you know.

I hope these lines will find you and Mrs. Richardson in good health. Kindly remember me most warmly to her, and do believe that though I haven't written you in sometime, I think very often of the very pleasant moments I have spent in Detroit, thanks to you.

Kindly believe me

Very sincerely yours,

(René Seligmann)

E. P. Richardson, Esq.
