Messrs. Wildenstein & Co.,

New York 21, New York.

[[underline]]Attention Mr. Vladimir Visson[[/underline]].

Gentlemen:

In answer to your letter of August 29th., requesting the loan of the Oscar Wilde pastel and watercolor, and the "Palais de Glace" drawing by Toulouse-Lautrec, may I advise you that the portrait of Oscar Wilde was sold by us before the war, in Paris, and that unfortunately I have no way of ascertaining where it is at present.

As regards the drawing, I have written to my client asking him to communicate directly with you.

With best wishes for the success of your exhibition,

Sincerely yours,

(Germain Seligman)
