Scope and content

Bennett has just received Mrs. Brodsky's radiogram to the effect that the Guarnerius is still in Bowdon and her nephew will take the violin to Bennett's friend on hearing from him. To this, Bennett immediately replied by cablegram [AB/560L], which emphasises the importance of the Hill's certificate as an aid to selling. In his letter, Bennett re-enforces the advantage of the Hill's certificate which he requested in his letter of 9 August to them. Bennett suggests that Mrs. Brodsky writes to Mr. Polah. Bennett suggests that Hills may make a higher offer than the 3,000 pounds mentioned and Bennett recommends that she should consider that rather than waiting for the full price in America. The letter is dated 20 Aug 1929.
