By Marconi Transatlantic Wireless Telegraph to The New York Times
PARIS, April 11---A newspaper whose artistic news is generally reliable
says that two men left Rome yesterday for Florence in order to see J. P. Morgan and offer to sell him "Mona Lisa," the famous picture recently stolen from the Louvre.

Mr. Morgan, who is staying at the Grand Hotel, Florence, went on an
automobile trip in the morning, but returned to Florence in the
afternoon to interview two mysterious visitors.
