My dear Mrs. Force:
I am sending my pictures by truck on Wednesday the second of October. Included with them is "The Baptism in Kansas" which I exhibited at the Corcoran show last year and about which I told you.
In July I had a letter from the Chicago Art Institute inviting this picture for the current exhibit. I couldn't get in touch with you and I felt I had better accept the invitation, so Budworth's will call for the picture on Thursday. I very much want you to see this particular work before they take it, so I am sending it in with the others.
The map I made for Mr. Prosser is hung in his home at Woods Hole. I have made no plans for showing any of the pictures I am sending you, other than the "Baptism", as they represent my work which you made possible during this past year.
I hope your summer proved restful and that I wasn't too percipitous in asking you to see my work so soon. Of course, I'm very anxious to hear your opinion.
