Prof H. A. McArdle
I have been waiting
to see if I could secure you a
good likeness of Gen Burleson.
I have two portraits of him
but neither is correct. His daughter
Mrs Judge Thos. Sneed of Austin
sends me one which she thinks is
better but I am sure is not a
fair likeness. I will send you
one which I think nearest correct.
I am glad you are at work
on the likeness of one of the truest
honest and most unselfish men
Texas ever saw.
