Pach writes to Winthrop asking permission to see Winthrop's collection because it contains "certain things of particular interest for my study and my painting ... Meier-Graefe [Julius Meier-Graefe] told me of seeing a David [Jacques Louis David] at your house ... and Childe Hassam, when lunching with us, spoke with enthusiasm of what he had seen when visiting you. David is of especial interest to us."
