consider nothing a trouble to serve the Institute of which you are so devoted a Director. 
As to sending pictures, this year I have none, they have been sold in Paris and I could not ask the owners to send them so far  as it would seem to them -

   With my sincere regrets and my renewed excuses, believe me, my dear Mr. Beatty
Most sincerely yours
