I have just heard from Mr Alfred Barr, the director of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, that they have finally been able to find the forty pounds with which to purchase one of my carvings – “Two Forms” – (in pynkado wood)and that the gift came from you – and he has sent on your cheque to me.
Mr Barr, in his letter, says “Naturally we are more than delighted to have this fine representative example of your work and all the more pleased because the gift was made possible through the generosity of so discerning a collector as Sir Michael Sadler.”
And of course I am also very happy indeed that my work is now represented in such an important museum in America and I am writing to thank you for having made it possible for them to have this work of mine for their permanent collection.
With kindest regards to you and to Lady Sadler.
