Dear Robert,

I have just received, from Bill, the catalogueCatalogue of the Superb Collection of Rings Formed by the Late Monseiur E. Guilhou, of Paris, Comprising Rings of the Classical Period, Including Egyptian, Phoenician, Greek, Etruscan and Roman Rings, Rings of the Dark Ages, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and Modern Times . . . Which will be Sold by Auction . . . on Tuesday, the 9th of November 1937, and Three Following Days (London: Sotheby and Co, 1937). of the GuilhouÉdouard Guilhou, a Parisian collector. collection of rings, which is being sold at Sotheby’s on November 9th and the following days. I am sending you the catalogue at once. You will see that there are some very fine rings in the collection, and also some magnificent Merovingian and Carolingian ones: see Plates XV to XVIII and Nos 439 to 548.

I expect to be going to London next week, and hope to be able to see the rings. I will write to you immediately I have seen them, and we ought to have plenty of time to make arrangements by letter and if necessary by cable to have a go for anything you may want. I am afraid that the collection, which is very well known, will attract a lot of attention, but all the same it is a great opportunity.
