Lot 66: ALS signed "Jackie," one page, lightly-lined, 5 x 7.25, no date. Letter to Geoffrey Bennison, a London interior designer and antique dealer. In part: "Do you still have the Venetian painting—the shop sign—Longhi? If you do, could you tell me again its price? I seem to remember it was astronomical. I hope I am mistaken—because it is difficult to persuade someone who is irrevocably set against acquiring paintings!" In fine condition, with a small stain at the top. Pietro Longhi was an 18th-century Venetian painter of contemporary scenes of life.
