Mr. Halsey C. Ives,
Chief, Fine Arts Dep’t, World’s Columbian Exposition, Chicago, Ill.

Dear Mr. Ives:

I have given Mr. Harrison S. Morris, Managing Director, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Philadelphia, an order on you for two paintings owned by me now in your exhibition, viz., “The Rising Moon” by D.W. Tryon and “The Musician” by T.W. Dewing. I visited the fair with Mr. Dewing last week, and on examination we found that parts of the picture have “crawled.” Mr. Dewing desires to re-touch the picture before sending it to Philadelphia. Will you therefore kindly send “The Musician”, to T.A. Wilmurt & Son, 54 East 13th St., New York City. “The Rising Moon” by Tryon can be delivered to Mr. Morris direct. I will write Mr. Wilmurt and request him to deliver “The Musician” to Mr. Dewing, who will re-touch the picture, after which it will be sent by him direct to Philadelphia. Will you kindly let me know if you can comply herewith.

I regret [[?]] see you while in Chicago last week. We enjoyed the Fine Arts Dep’t very much, particularly the American pictures.

With kindest regards, I remain,

Yours very sincerely,
C. L. Freer
