Mr. Hermon More,
Davenport Municipal Art Gallery,
Dear Mr. More:
I made a mistake in the wire. Not any of the Karl Free paintings are available, everything having been sold, except one which is out on approval. I myself had bought the "Approaching Storm", but considering that it is a museum who wants it, I will let it go and am shipping it today. If the Museum does not take it, it is, of course, to be returned to me. I bought it for $300., and I think that tghe Museum should pay that for it. I want Karl Free to get every penny cut of it as is possible, as he is abroad now and #300. will mean more to him now than $500. later.
I am selecting a few of yours that we feel we can spare from the show and will ship in a few days. Your show looks very good, indeed, adn I am sorry you cannot see it. I will send you the press clippings in connectrion with it. I am delighted the Museum will buy one of yours, also Mr. Free's, and think it is "most enlightened".
P. S. We have one very beautiful water color left, if they would like to consider that.
