When next you come to New York, I will show you another very important work ^[[in marble]] of early French art, which I am sure will interest you greatly.

You will permit me to say that you ought to think about these two splendid marble columns, which are certainly among the most beautiful and rarest documents of early Christian art, and are in exceptional condition. They also have one of the finest pedigrees one might wish for, with all official documents. Another advantage is that their price is most reasonable.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon, pray believe me,

Yours sincerely,
