262 Stanton Street
New York, March 19, 1920
Dear Dave

I saw Harry yesterday afternoon and was with him again this noon. He is constantly thinking of you and the others and always asks to be remembered. He may write you a letter just as soon as he finds something new to say.

I saw "Robbie" last night and had to drag him with me to the Bronx, to fulfil an urgent request. I realized that all this bustle on my part was not fair to "Robbie". I did not expect to go to the Bronx when I made the appointment with "Robbie" but my other appointment was so much more pressing that I thought it worth while inconveniencing "Robbie". Two communications I received this week from a mutual friend had a good deal to say about Harry. "Robbie" took me to concert after my call to the Bronx. I also was at his home and saw a number of the paintings he spoke to you about. They certainly look like real paintings and if seen in the museum you would imagine they were done by a famous painter. "Robbie" said he once told you that he dabbled in art. Well when you reach New York insist that you want to look over his art gallery.

I am in a hurry with this so I will close with regards and love to you from the folks and from myself.

Julius
