Stony Brook, March 3d., 1850.
My dear Sir,
Your flattering letter of Feb. 21st I have received.
I am pleased to state, that the picture you have inquired about, "News from California," is quite finished. A few friends that have seen it, say it is a better picture than "The Power of Music."
Do you wish a negro man, or a white man as a companion to the picture "Just in Tune"? Will the same size canvass answer? 25 x 30 inches?
My Sister and Julia, sends their regards to you.
