Belle Sherman Kendall to McArdle, July 1887

Houston July 7th 1887.

Mr. H. A. McArdle

Independence

            Tex

Dear Sir,

            I send

to you this evening by Express

the portrait of my Father.

Genl Sidney Sherman, painted,

I believe, in 1837 or 8 by an

Artist in Louisville Ky. It

is a life like picture of

him at that time but

it begins to need a little

brushing up, and if after

you have finished with it if

you will touch it where you

think it needs the brush

I will be much ____ [?]. I

hope you will receive it in

good order — keep it a month

if you like — and return

to me. Wishing you every

success in your work,

which I shall hope one
