Dear Mr. Trumbauer,
In to-day's mail from New-York I find your letter of July 12th. re. garden statuary for Mrs. Hamilton RICE. In answer to the offer which you tell me that you are authorized to make for this lady, this is what I am able to say. Your offer is as follows:
Two old vases No 6988...............$ 800,-
Garden group, Apollo & Cupid........$ 2500.-
1 group of 2 figures, 18th. century..$ 4^[[5]]000.-
Of the above the two first belong to the old stock of Eugene GLAENZER & Co and, as I am most desirous of selling it, even with a slight loss, I am willing to accept your offer for these two items, namely:
Two old vases No 6988..................$ 800.-
Garden group: Apollo & Cupid...........$ 2500.-
[[underlined]] $3.300.- [[/underlined]] providing however that this would be a net price for Eugene GLAENZER & Co, and that the "taxede luxe" will be paid by Mrs. RICE.
