For your information, we also wish to state that, conversely speaking, when we have sold English assets in this country, we have made cable remittance to England as soon as the monies due were received by us.

In view of the above, we trust that you will see fit to release the monies due us which we previously instructed Wildenstein & Co., Ltd. to remit to Morgan Grenfell, London, for the registered account of J. P. Morgan & Co., New York, to the credit of our account with them.

In the meantime, however, we should appreciate your posting us of the present status of the application which Wildenstein & Co., Ltd. has advised us they made many months ago for permission to transfer such funds to this country.

With anticipated thanks for your consideration,

Yours very truly,


Germain Seligman,
