Description

Letter from Freer to G. Camas

Abstract

On my return home this morning I found your letter of June 15th. In reply I beg to say, that I have very little interest in Persian potteries but, as you doubtless know, I have collected a few specimens of Racca. I doubt very much if the two Persian bowls described by you are of the kind I would care to purchase; however, if you wish to send them to me for examination you may do so. I do not think it would pay you to go to the expense of coming to Detroit for the sole purpose of showing me the bowls.

Dear Sir:--

On my return hoe this morning I found your letter of June 15th. In reply I beg to say, that I have very little interest in Persian potteries but, as you doubtless know, I have collected a few specimens of Racca. I doubt very much if the two Persian bowls described by you are of the kind I would care to purchase; however, if you wish to send them to me for examination you may do so. I do not think it would pay you to go to the expense of coming to Detroit for the sole purpose of showing me the bowls.

Yours truly,

Charles L. Freer
