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,
