Burleson to McArdle, May 1887

May 12th 1887

Prof H. A. McArdle

Dear Sir.

            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.

            We have just matriculated

our 440th student and 4 more
