Dear Royall:

Before you went to London, as announced in your letter of the 11th instant, I hope you received my letter written from Santa Barbara in regard to the sale of the Guichon collection.Catalogue 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). See also Seymour de Ricci, Catalogue of a Collection of Ancient Rings Formed by the Late E. Guilhou (Paris, 1912). Even if you did not receive it, you will be writing me about our impressions after seeing the actual pieces, and I shall be most interested to learn what you think about the various Byzantine rings, as well as the Merovingian and Carolingian ones.

With much love,

Yours always,

[unsigned]

P.S. We were glad to have, two days ago, a postcard from Bill and Betsy from Antigny.
