Mortimer Schiff, Esq.
932 Fifth Avenue
New York

Dear Mr. Schiff,-

This morning I called for a minute at your home to realize what size was the frame around the little tapestry down stairs. It is just 4".

Since I had the pleasure of seeing you, I got a note from my father, telling me of a very good frame maker whom he got in touch with in Paris, and adding that, should I not have had the frame already made here, he would be of the opinion of finally having this done in Paris. Unless I hear from you to the contrary, I will send him the measurements and ask him to have the frame made over there. I have seen other models for frames in the meantime which did not satisfy me, and besides, people here are so busy around this time of the year that I think after all it would be quicker to have it carried out in Paris. 

I hope that your tooth does not make you suffer any more, and looking forward to seeing you soon, pray believe me, 

Yours very sincerely,
