Mr Jaques Seligmann;
Dear Sir;
Having heard of some very favorable remarks, which you made about a picture painted by me of Mr Henry Morgenthau, I should very much like to tell you that I enjoied your criticism very much indeed and that the more so as I am not well known yet in this country after being accustomed to very good successes on the continent. I should appreciate it very much if the good impression which my picture made on your mind would give me the chance of meeting a connoisseur of your rank.
