Dear Mr Clark
I cannot write to Mr. Goelet—I think I told you why—
The Boston, Brooklyn, & Worcester, & Metropolitan Museum had all recently sent their watercolours to Paris, which is why I did not wish any of them to be asked again—I cannot ask for them or approve of them being asked. Of course a small sprinkling of 12 water- colours is no use at all and I should suggest their being returned to Worcester and to Mrs. Blanchard—but just as you like—
I hope Mr. Winthrop has lent his father’s portrait.
I don’t remember the date of any of them—and I don’t see any necessity for dates.
