My dear Robert.
I wonder whether it would be possible for you to find out whether Brummer (a Hungarian subject) is in one of the concentration camps in France?At the start of the First World War in 1914, Joseph Brummer moved to New York. He opened a sales gallery there at 43 East Fifty-Seventh Street in 1921. I think the war found him in this country, but have heard nothing definite.
He has some things of mine in his safe for which I have no receipt—and though I trust him entirely, I would not be sorry to have an acknowledgement from him in case it were needed.
