Dear Leonebel:

I am taking out insurance on Frank’s portrait, and the insurance company has asked me to ask you to write them a letter stating that you did the portrait, and the price which we paid for it. They need this for their records. Their name and address is:

Mitchell May, Jr. Co., Inc.
510 West Sixth Street
Los Angeles 14, California

The portrait is probably the best of my material treasures. It makes me happy every time I look at it. Thank you for it once more.

With best regards,



Ayn Rand
