Dear Mr. Plimpton:
I am so sorry there has been a
mis-understanding about the Speicher picture. The
one which you have in the Show was listed at $600.
When you telegraphed the offer of $500. I submitted
it to Mr. Speicher, and he said that in justice to
the other people in Minneapolis who had bought flower
pictures from his dealer here, he could not afford
to let it go for less than the list price which you
have. I telegraphed you accordingly. Your second
telegram asked if it could be sold at the list price,
at $600., and I immediately wired, yes.
I hope that this will straighten
the matter out, and if it is too late, that I may
see the purchaser when he comes to New York in
January, as you suggest.
Thank you very much indeed, for the
catalogues and the clippings. I am very much pleased
with the criticisms and think that we fared very well.
With kindest regards, I am
Mr. Russell A. Plimpton
