H. A. McArdle Esq.


My Dear Sir,

As you some time ago reques-

ted my likeness, which I sent in

the shape of a cart[e] de visite, and

as I had a new one taken about

ten days ago, I have ventured

to send you a specimen of the cart[e]

that you may note the difference be-

tween sixty four and seventy six.

The last of the pictures would be the

best were it not that the illusion

of shade gives it a slightly open

mouthed appearance. The fullness of face is mainly

caused by more complete re-teething.

I mailed to you five weeks ago

a pamphlet, being a reprint of an arti-

cle of mine published in the January No.

of the Magazine of American History

printed at New York. Not being cer-

tain of your address I directed it

to the care of the Post Master of

Brenham, to redirect if needful. I

would be glad to know that you got

it. If you have not I can send another

when I am certain of your

present address. The article is a

revision and enlargement of that which

I published in San Antonio in 1860,
