[[RECEIVED JUL 19 1918 H.C. FRICK]]
Dear Mr. Frick,
With regard to the fine small Bronze which I spoke to you about this morning, I beg to enclose you the owner's letter, which I think you will find rather amusing. We have replied to him that the price is too high. I may remark that at this time last year he was asking $100000.00 for it. No doubt if we wait a few more months the price will go down still more considerably. The Bronze is still a perfect gem and one of the very few remaining fine small Bronzes that I know of. We missed purchasing this about fifteen years ago in Italy.
Believe me to remain, Yours very truly, Joseph Duveen
H.C. Frick, Esq.,
- 1 East 70th Street,
New York City.
