October 30th 1922

Mr. W. W. Bosworth,
527 Fifth Avenue
New York

My dear Mr. Bosworth,-

As I promised you, I want to let you know of my arrival here. I landed on Saturday night, and as you see, I lose no time getting in touch with you.

The two little Urbino plates that you liked so much for your mantel have arrived, and I will be glad to see how they look where you intend to place them. Do not bother about the price of them. You will remember that I told you in Paris that they were Frs. 3.000 each, which_ with the sudden rise in the exchange, does not amount to very much, and besides I want to be agreeable to you. The only thing I want is to have the pleasure of taking them to you myself, and thus have the pleasure to see you.

You might be so kind as to inform your office what time I could call you up, and I will give you a ring to_morrow or Wednesday.

Hoping that you are enjoying good health, and looking forward to seeing you soon, pray believe me,

Yours sincerely,

The use of _ instead of - seems to fit what the writer did.
