THE ANDERSON GALLERIES [MITCHELL KENNERLEY, President] PARK AVENUE AND FIFTY-NINTH STREET
May third 1927
Mr. R. H. Hathaway,
258 Garden Avenue,
Dear Mr. Hathaway:
I am pleased to tell you that your Thackeray book
sold for $1025which is a very good price The McCutcheon copy was
bound to sell for a good price because Drake had sold it to him and
the copy we sold several years ago brought a good price because it
belonged to Drake. I did not expect so much for your copy as it
had no trade backing and no one has ever quite believed in the book.
Lady Ritchie's letter does not always count as she has made many
mistakes and was always for sale.
The commission including a proportionate share of the expenses of
the catalogue, adverstising, etc., will be 20%. A statement and
check will follow in thirty days.
Yours very truly,
