Dear Mr. Perls

After so many years, it gave me pleasure
to read your name in connection with the
Associated American Artists Galleries in
Los Angeles, and to learn thus of your appointment, as head of the California Branch.

May I, on this occasion, send you my congratulations and best wishes for success.

I am wondering whether the activities will be led along the same lines as the New York House. Are you going to extend them to include European art of the 20th. and also 19th. centuries?

Looking forward to hearing from you, and meanwhile,

With the Best Compliments of the

^[[check mark]] Frank Perls, Esq.     Yours very sincerely,
