#3 Newchwang Road,
Shanghai, China,
Sept. 13, 1919. 

Charles L. Freer, Esq., 
33 Ferry Avenue East,
Detroit, Michigan, U. S. A.

Dear Sir:-

I beg to acknowledge the receipt of your favor of the 2nd August, 1919 and feel grateful for your taking all the jade and other art articles. You have also kindly taken the painting by Li Tsang, brought over by Mr. Pan Tsang Chen at the price fixed by me.

We wish very much that you would not strain yourself to examine the paintings at present, but until you have fully recov ered. Both of my cables I trust have been received. The reason why I requested you to remit G$10,000 to E700 Burkill Road, my residential address, is because at the time we were contemplating of removing our business headuarters to another address. But due to certain arrangements we will not do so until sometime later. Our present address is still 3 Newchwang Road. 

I was intending to go to States and thereby to pay a visit to you, but owing to my rather poor health I have at present refrained from taking up the step. Probably sometime^[[/]]next year I may be able to realize my long cherished desire. 

I hope very much that you have now fully recovered. Have you returned to your home in Detroit?

With our sincere regards, 
Yours very faitfully,
