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
