GS November 22nd 1922 [[checkmark]] Colonel Wm. B. Thompson 1051 North Broadway Yonkers, N.Y. Dear Sir,- I have heard quite often of your beautiful collection, and even in Paris I was told of the beautiful things that you have been collecting in the past few years. I hear that not only you have gathered works of art and pictures of great monetary value, but that you also have the finest collection of precious stones and diamonds in the world. You have certainly heard of our name in connection with the big col- lections of America, such as that of the late J. Pierpont Morgan, Frick, Altman, etc. where our senior partner, Mr. Jacques Seligmann, was always called in as an expert. Could you give me the great treat of allowing me to call on you some time, I hope in the near future, and visit with you your beautiful collection?- As we are very busy, I would suggest calling on you some Sunday if agreeable to you. I will take the liberty to call you up to find out what day and time would suitable to you, and looking forward to making the acquaintance of such a great art amateur as you are, pray believe me, Yours sincerely,
