Dear Mr. Marvel:

As soon as I received your wire asking me to extend the loan of my two DELACROIX paintings for a week, I immediately telephoned to Messrs. Wildenstein & Co., telling them I consented.

In view of the personal interest you are taking in this exhibition, I thought I would let you know - especially as it gives me an opportunity to congratulate you on the splendid work you are performing.

Yours very sincerely,
(Germain Seligman)

Mr. Josiah P. Marvel,
