Dear John:

As per the wish you expressed, I take pleasure in sending you, herein, a photograph of the painting by

MONET "Le Dejeuner sous la Tente"

It was indeed a difficult painting to reproduce, I recall, for the forms and shapes as you will remember were all diluted in the hot sun rays.

With cordial greetings,
Sincerely yours,
Germain Seligman
