Dear Robert,

Many thanks for your letter of June 28th.

I will look forward to hearing from you, at the Knickerbocker ClubThe Knickerbocker Club, a gentlemen’s club in New York that was founded in 1871 and has been located at 2 East 62nd Street since 1913. on August 1st, where you are at the moment, and I count on seeing you somehow or other, over there. I myself do not expect to be there more than 10 days, all told. In fact, I have a reservation on the “Ile de France”SS Ile de France, an ocean liner built in 1926 for the Compagnie Générale Transatlantique and launched in May 1927. sailing from New York August 11th.

Much love to you both

Yrs

Unless I hear from you to the contrary, I shall assume there’ll be a room for me at the Knickerbocker,The Knickerbocker Club, a gentlemen’s club in New York that was founded in 1871 and has been located at 2 East 62nd Street since 1913. Aug. 1. I’m delighted that Jack has got the Nativity ivoryBZ.1951.30. from the Chalandon Coll.The Chalandon collection was the property of Albin Chalandon, Lyons, and his son, Georges Chalandon, Paris. The collection was sold by the Galerie Les Tourettes, Basel (Otto Wertheimer, Paris) beginning in 1951. I’ve been after it for DO, for years.
