Since the revolution in China odd pieces of pictures from old collectors have occasionally been offered and many have been collected by me.  At my leisure I propose personally to visit America when I shall bring many of them to obtain your opinion. 

I am aware of the fact that you are a great collector in the whole of America and stand without a peer.  I also love picture to my bones, and it may well be said that in your good self I have one of the same mind beyond the seas. 

I indite this to express our gratitude and with assurance of esteem.

I remain, 
Yours very sincerely, 
Pang Lai Ch'en
