December 26th 1922

Mr. Edson Bradley
998 Fifth Avenue
New York

Dear Sir,-

I took the liberty of writing you a few days ago, although I never had the pleasure to meet you before, and I hope you will excuse my writing you again to-day.

We are going to have a strictly private and limited exhibition for three days, Thursday, Friday and Saturday of this week, of the four finest 18th century silver-woven tapestries that have ever been made.

This will be a most exceptional sight.

As stated above, I am only asking a very limited number of people, ten or twelve, to come and see these tapestries, and although I have not the pleasure to know you, I have heard so much about your interest in art that I am sure you would like to come and see them.

Yours truly,

(Germain Seligmann)
