Dearest Mildred.

Isbirian,The Parisian dealer Isbirian has not been identified. In the letter of November 3, 1928, his address is given as 31, rue Saint-Lazare, Paris, and his telephone number as Trudaine 71.01. he of the plate, has just written to me to say that the ‘owner of the plate’ desires to sell it, and would accept 30,000 dollars. Je le crois. Se vuelven locos pidiendo.“I’d think so. They go crazy asking.” We’ll have to let BisbisRoyall Tyler’s nickname for Isbirian. stew a little. I’ll see it myself as soon as I can, and report further.

Hayford Peirce’s motherAnna Hayford Peirce (1856–1928), an accomplished linguist and photographer. has just died suddenly, and he is sailing for the US., but I don’t expect he’ll be away long. We’ll do our best to keep in touch and prepare the way for buying it, but I fear we shall have to wait till Bisbis has had a few disillusionments, if I may make so bold with the English language.

Much love to you and Robert

Yrs always
