Sister & so many of our friends on the good ship Elder. I am sorry not to see yours and that of my friend your Grandfathers, but I thank you with all my heart for those you have sent, had you not sent them, I never should have had one. You should have heard from me sooner had it now been for an unusual press of professional occupation, some of the results of which I wish I could show you and also to the members of your family. I hope you may all come to Paris next spring, if you come I fully believe the Universal Exposition will greatly interest you! I shall continue to hope to see you all this way.” “I have in hand just now a large picture of Archbishop Rearden of San Franciscos and General Windslow and a half length portrait of Monsieur Barbedienne who has done so much for art in France he is also good subject for a picture; to the Salon I shall send that of the Cardinal Archbishop of Gibbons of Baltimore with a man of letters Dreyfus; to the great Exposition, a half length of the Earl of Lytton who is the Ambassador to this Country from England. A girl of 14 years a whole length playing the violin. I hope this work may have as much success out of my atelier as it has had in it.
