Dear Mr. William "Bill" Wegman,

I have been following your work for some time (about 50 years). I feel now, at this the moment, is the opportune time to offer you a show in our lovely gallery on Allen St.

If you accept, I think we could show maybe, perhaps two of your newest paintings and a large selection of drawings, perhaps some from the 1970's. This would be very beautiful, but of course any suggestions you may have would be welcome.

Please have the common courtesy to let me know if you'll accept this kind offer. Looking forward to your reaction,

Warmly,
David Deutsch.
