Merci votre treize mars. Ecris premier acceptons tapis refusons urne.“Thank you for your 13th March. I write first we accept carpet, refuse urn.” This carpet is no longer in the Dumbarton Oaks Collection. In the ex-collection files, it is described as Rhodian, tomato ground with styled foliage and a geometric border, 7’4” x 4’3”. The Blisses acquired the carpet from Kalebdjian on April 29, 1928. The carpet was sold to Karekin Beshir in December 1952. The carpet was subsequently acquired by John J. Emery Jr. and given to the Cincinnati Art Museum. See letters of January 5, 1928; February 1, 1928 [1]; February 1, 1928 [2]; March 13, 1928; and April 29, 1928.
