Aug. 25th, 1931

My dear Mr. Ferguson,

It is with sincere regret that, because of my husband’s nervous condition, we have been obliged to cancel our plans for America this winter and cannot, therefore, be present at the opening of the Museum. We had hoped to be able to thank you in person for the really wonderful interest you have taken in this house of the beautiful, and to thank you for the exceptional work you have done, and the care and pride you have felt and shown in its construction. We have built houses in many countries but you, Mr. Ferguson, are the first contractor we have had,–and I dare say, the first on record–, who completed his building for less than the contracted price, and who’s work when finished showed perfection even to the most minute detail.

I hear only praise of the Museum from all sides which makes me doubly regret that I cannot at once see it, and have the great pleasure of personally presenting your work of art to the town and country. Mr. Singer joins me in appreciation of your great interest, cooperation and splendid work.

With very kind regards, also from my husband and my brother,
Sincerely yours

Anna B. Singer
