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
