Henry C. Frick, Esq., 640 Fifth Avenue New York City.


Dear Sir:-


Without doubt the collection of paintings which you were good enough to loan to the Union League Club marked an epoch in the art exhibitions which have been held at the Club.


The widespread interest taken in the exhibition of your pictures is evidenced by the fact that the total attendance of invited guests was far greater than on any previous similar occasion. --- the card visitors numbering over five thousand six hundred.


The Committee on Art desires to attest its appreciation of the very great favor you have conferred upon the Club, and of the generous spirit which animated you in permitting a portion of your unrivalled collection to be seen by the members of the Club and their friends.


With assurances of our highest regard, we remain,


Very truly yours,

SIGNED x H. B. Wilson ?? , Chairman.
