Royall Tyler to Robert Woods Bliss, September 15, 1937

Hotel Beau-Rivage



Dear Robert.

At last! The round Emperor’sBZ.1937.23. insurance against all risks, for 33 (purchase price) is netted with Lloyds, and the object is on its way, to be shipped on board the SS. City of Havre, at Le Havre the 27th inst., for Baltimore. It is of course addressed to you at D.O.

I trust that now, having broken the ice with Lloyds, any further operations will be less complicated & lengthy.

The terms in this case are 2% plus 0.025 to = $668.25, & no doubt some small charge for fetching it from Fiedler. I’ll pay it.

I’m pining to know how the Emp.BZ.1937.23. strikes you.


R. T.
