Houston Sept 22nd 1890

Mr. H. A. McArdle


Independence.

Dear Sir.

            I hope you will par-


don my delay in replying to yours concern-


ing the painting of our Mothers picture on


the Flag of the Battle of San Jacinto. I con-


sulted Col. Brady on the subject,  my district


being out of the state, and he agreed


with me that it would not seem ap-


propriate in as much as it would be


impossible to obtain a likeness of


her in her younger days. All the


pictures we have of her being taken late


in life. I am glad to know the name


of my Fathers Company. I think I never


heard it before. Wishing you much


success in your Grand Undertaking—

I am Sincerely,

Belle S. Kendall
