Dear Mr. Rice is a letter in Silent Hill: Downpour. It is located in Fenders Fine Art and Appraisals and is one of two letters written by Melissa Matlan, requesting the works of Lilian Shelley for display in the art gallery. Lilian Shelley is responsible for six works that the player can collect in the game for "The Art Collector" sidequest.
Dear Mr. Rice,
The DeLalls painting in your collection needs to be in a public gallery, not the private home of an eccentric recluse who selfishly hordes such treasures for his sole enjoyment. I have tried repeatedly to get you to accept my generous offers to purchase the paintings, but once again you rebuff me, leaving me no choice but to take drastic measures.
It would be extremely unfortunate if certain details regarding your son's suicide were made public. Give me the painting, and I'll assure you that these allegations will never see the light of day. Refuse me, and face the consequences.
