Letter from David Trumbull Lanman to his sister Abigail, written on a broadside listing paintings, prints and ephemera for sale from the estate of John Trumbull, Lanman's great-uncle. Broadside is annotated with appraisal prices of items to be auctioned. Lanman sent this catalog to his sister in case she wanted items removed from the auction "because you don't wish them sold for less than what you suppose they are worth or what you would be willing to give for them."
