My dear Mr. Heade
     That Petit Grand Manan
picture is Not at all
suitable for exhibition.
On no account let it go to 
Chicago or anywhere else
to be exhibited.  I don't
mean by this that I am
ashamed of it, but I have
my own view as to which
of my pictures I want
exhibited and - twixt you and
I - I prefer generally to
keep out of Public places.
I feel so much confidence
in your gun that I consider
the game dinner questioned
fixed.  I am contemplating
a visit to New York to select
registers (hot air) for my castle
