2paint on canvas to make fine pictures. Keith I believe is the only good colorist this side the Continent. He is glad to have a specimen of his work in a home in your great city - & says that he thinks of sending a few other small pictures for your friends to see, who may perchance like them & buy them. If he does, let the pictures speak for themselves, but do not take trouble to sell them either for his sake or mine, but only for the love of beauty. We all have most pleasant memories of your visit & appreciate your generous invitation to your home
