Probably related to the article “Kalmykoff Collection Hunt Begun, ‘Lady’ Diana Denies Mystery as Bay City Bank Starts Search for Treasures.” Los Angeles Times, 14 Jun. 1926. The article states: “… ‘Lady’ Diana Bathurst … denied that there is any mystery connected with it. ‘…The collection was divided by probate last year, a son of the painter and his adopted daughter, Mrs. Galina Nitikin Dolgoloff … receiving the various works.’ … attorney for Mrs. Dolgolopoff … intimated that the matter of ownership of the collection has been settled…”
First page of a handwritten letter, photographed on cloth background, with small crown as letterhead.

That is the part that hurts - that you immediately believed
