My dear Sir,
Your very kind favor of the 26th inst is at hand.
We are obliged by the offer to hang the portrait in the Rooms of the National Academy, but the family prefer not to allow it to go out of the house. They they think too much of it, to have it away. Some time when we can find a lady with a mouth like the original, we must try and improve the picture, tho many call it good as it is, and all are Aston
ished that you could do so well, under all the disadvantageous circumstances. When over drop in and see us. All send kind regards to you, and expect to see in the Academy some of your superior handy work. Has Long Island seceeded yet?
Yours Very Truly
M. C. Morgan
