Having been personally acquainted with the late distinguished painter Washington Allston, from whom the association has taken its name, I feel thankful to the "Board of Management" for their kind invitation, and in as much as I cannot attend personally the "Soiree" on the evening of the 16th inst owing to previous engagements-I take the liberty to send you my photograph- with my best wishes for the prosperity of the Association.
Yours, very truly.
