Dear Sir:-

We are pleased to be informed through Miss Rhoade's letter that you are keeping improving rapidly.  In fact we have been anxious to know of this all the while and trust before long you will fully recover from the recent illness.

We wish to thank you for your cablegram informing us of your receipt of the art articles and that you are inspecting then yoursevles.  We feel also grateful that you kindly ha-ve agreed to remit some money if we are in need of it.  In our last cablegram we requested that you would kindly remit $10,000 to our residenrce address No. 700 Burkill Road.  Upon receipt of the same we will wire reply.

We regret to inform you we are doing rather poorly so far as our business is concerned, and in spite of the unfavourable rate of exchange we would need to have some more funds so as to settle some of the urgent accounts.  Therefore, we beg to again request that you will kindly remit another $25,000 or so to the above address which will greatly oblige.

Yours very faithfully
