Dear Mr. Stendahl:

I am indeed sorry that I did not have another chance to see you before my departure.  Unfortunately, time was short and I found myself frightfully tied up.  However, I did so much enjoy our brief luncheon, and I sincerely hope that we may be able to work out some business together in the future.

Knowing you get to New York fairly frequently, I would rather wait until I can show you some of our things in the Galleries here, but in the meantime, if you have any particular call for a certain type of picture, or drawing, or water color, I would be extremely glad to see if I could provide it for you.

In the meantime, with my best wished and looking forward to seeing you again in the near future, I am

Yours sincerely,

(Robert M. Levy)

Mr. Earl Stendahl
Stendhal Galleries
3006 Wilshire Boulevard
Los Angeles, California

P.S. I hope you won't forget about the photograph of the little Seurat painting I saw in your Galleries.  I am so anxious to have this, together with all the data connected with it, for Mr. de Hauke's catalog, which I explained to you.

Thank you,
