Does anyone have any pocket change hanging around to afford this?

This is one of many letters written to Weichmann from A.C. Richards up for sale on eBay lately.  I'm guessing someone has acquired and is now selling off Floyd Risvold's Weichmann materials.

Richard Sloan alerted this to me months ago. This is the second auction site this has been posted on.
We watched the prices go up on these letters, from the other site.
There all reprinted in Weichmann's book.
I think the real question to be asked, is how reliable is. A.C.'s word.? Huh

The current seller on Ebay told me he purchased them in a bulk sale from an auction house last year.

Too bad the collection is being broken up letter by letter.
