Your work has recently come to my attention. I was hoping to commission from you seven (7) copies of your fine painting "Dandy With A Rooster's Head." I would be willing to pay a considerable amount for the pleasure.
I hope that, with this gesture of good faith, we can put that unfortunate incident at the Asylum well into the past.
