I purchased at the "Waldo sale" some of those Pannels, viz, 9-26 x 33; 3-28 x 36; 3-24 x 30; 2-22 x 27.
Most of them have the portraits of Somebodies Grandfather or mother on them. The cost but 75› each, about what the wood is worth by the foot. If they are of any use to you, you are quite welcome to them. I will send a specimen of each by the
sloop to your place, if you will write me where to find her.
In framing your "Boys going Trapping" I thought of making it of carved wood with something appropriate in the design to the subject, similar to the accompanying sketch. The animals are supposed to be rabbits. What do you think of this idea?
