We had this morning the visit of Dr. Preston P. Satterwhite, who saw at our galleries a very fine Gothic tapestry, one of the finest, not to say the finest, ever brought to this country.

Dr. Satterwhite especially asked us to write to you to invite you to come and see this tapestry, which we are all the more pleased to do that we know by reputation of your very fine collection, and also that you are among the connaisseurs of this country.

We also believe you are corresponding with our senior partner, Mr. Jacques Seligmann.

We hope to have the pleasure of your visit in the near future. We are in every afternoon, but should you prefer to [[wrinkled paper]] some morning, we will be glad if you will make and appointment.

Pray believe us,

Yours sincerely,

P.S.- The Buffalo Art Museum has just asked us to kindly lend them this tapestry for a week or two for an exhibition, and we hope that you will come at your earliest convenience to see it before we send i out.
