London W.2
1st Feb. 60

Dear Mr. Seligman,

Many thanks for your letter of the 19th Jan.

In my opinion all the bronses in the sale at Sotheby on Febr. 5th are reproductions or fakes, an amasing assembly. 

I made some enquiries re Tiepolo - Kunard. It seems that he is at present not in the mood to sell o I am told that it would be doubtful if the painting could leave the country.

I am writing on my way home. 

With best regards
Your sincerely

Herbert Bier
