Letters from curators and dealers of antiquities, including Bernard V. Bothmer, and Henry George Fischer; and fourteen object cards for works in Gallatin's collection. Several of the letters received from Bothmer respond to an interest Gallatin expresses in an Egyptian statuette of King Piankhi (made ca. dynasty XXV) that has been made available to Gallatin for purchase. Bothmer conveys his findings on its provenance, and, via a photograph sent, makes a detailed analysis of the iconography of the statuette. Also included but not microfilmed is a copy of Gallatin's book, "The Pursuit of Happiness" (1950).
