personal favor to ourselves, he would feel extremely annoyed with us should it become known generally, that the picture was offered for sale, & we would consequently ask you to be so good, should you not in any way entertain it, not to mention that it has been offered to you for sale. --

We are naturally in a position to give you the whole history of the picture from its conception. ---

Awaiting the favor of your reply

We remain Sir

Yours faithfully

Burrington & Boss

P. S. Needless to add that in the event of your caring to see it in America, whether you purchased or not, you would be put to no expense in the matter, as we should be rather glad with a reason for coming out as we should combine the trip with other business. --
