New York 22, New York

December 9, 1964

Dear Mr. Cummings:

It is only a few days ago that I heard of your appointment as Curator of Drawings Art at the Detroit Institute of Arts and may I express my best wishes in your new post.

In fact, recently, thinking you were still at the University of Missouri, I had made a note of an article on Casanova which I thought would have been of interest to you in view of the purchase you made from my Gallery of the quite exceptional Casanova water color.

Though I realize today that this matter is probably no longer on your mind, may I nevertheless call it to your attention? It appeared in "Pantheon", May-June 1964, on page 173, and it is an article by Heinrich Leporini.

I assume that you come to New York off and on, and I hope that on your next visit you will give me the opportunity and pleasure of renewing our acquaintance.

Yours very sincerely,

Germain Seligman

Mr. Fred J. Cummings
Curator of European Art
