Dearest Mildred,

Just a line to tell you that Bill has put on 3½ kg. since he has been at Viareggio—in 3 weeks—and that he is feeling very well.

I’m ordering to have sent to you the May “Burlington”Hayford Peirce and Royall Tyler, “The Prague Rider-Silk and the Persian-Byzantine Problem,” The Burlington Magazine for Connoisseurs 68, no. 398 (May 1936), 213–15, 218–21, 224. which contains an article by the raison sociale“Corporate name.” Peirce and Tyler (by me, in this case) on the Prague Rider Silk, which Robert saw in the Cathedral there. Please read it—I’m rather pleased with it.

I’m spoiling to get to work on Vol. IV.L’art byzantin. Hayford has been doing preparatory work on it all this last year while I’ve been drafting Vol. III—and I hope he’ll be able to come over to Antigny this summer so that we may make the actual selection of objects to be published: always a very delicate operation, which we have to be together to do, as it of course involves making up our minds, or mind rather, on all the problems involved.

Much love, dearest Mildred,

Yrs

R. T.
