BERGFELDT NEW YORK CITY [[/preprinted]] Box- 630, City Hall Station. July 21st, 1921. Messrs. Jacques Seligmann & Co, Inc, 705, Fifth Avenue, New York City Dear Sirs:- Through my friend, who is in direct touch with the Officials of a former Imperial Government in Europe, I have been offered, for sale in America, the historical furnitures which formerly belonged to a Royal Family. I wish to call your attention to the fact that this offer is not a fake proposition, as these furnitures are now being sold and guaranteed to be authentic, by the Government in whose possession they are actually. Your reputation as one of the First Houses in this line of business, in this Country, leads me to believe that amongst your exclusive clientele, you will be able to resell these rare articles with a very good profit, in as much as the price is exceedingly low. Attached, please find a list of the articles for sale. It is understood, that this offer is subject to prior sale and is made without any engagements on our part. As you are the first party to whom I have made this offer, I would greatly appreciate your prompt reply advising me whether you are interested in this proposition or not. If you are interested, I will call at your Office at your convenience. Yours very truly. [[signed]] J.V.P. Bergfeldt. JB/JVPB.
