Great Barrington, Mass., September 19, 1917.

Mr. Seaouke Yue,
Poh Kue Tsar,
3 Newchwang Road,
Shanghai, China.

My dear Mr. Yue:

Mr. Freer has requested me to advise you that the shipment of four cases containing jade, bronze, pottery and paintings, covered by the consular invoice No. 3345 of July 28, 1917, has arrived in Detroit; but that as Mr. Freer is at present in Great Barrington, Mass., he has not yet seen any of the objects. However, he is in correspondence with his Detroit office concerning them and has belief that they arrived in good condition, but will know positively when he gives them personal inspection later.

To enable Mr. Freer to either purchase some or all of these objects for his own collection, or to aid you in selling them to others, it is necessary for Mr. Freer to have your lowest price for each object separately, and he trusts that you will send him promptly a list showing such price for each object.

Please address all your letters to Mr. ^[[Charles L.]] Freer at his Detroit home, 33 Ferry Avenue, East, Detroit, Michigan, as he is not likely to remain in Great Barrington very much longer.

With cordial greetings,

Sincerely yours,
