Mrs. Lamar to McArdle, April 1891

April 4th /91

Mr McArdle

Dear Sir

I exceedingly


regret not having been able to


to [sic] assist you in getting a good


likeness of my noble husband[;] [I]


have written to Judge Lamar


twice on the subject who [& he] seemed


much interested & said he


would try his best to procure


the picture loaned his Son


& I thought from his letter


that it would have been


sent ere this. I have just


now written to him again


enclosing your letter, just


received, & hope for an early 

response. Mr. Chappell


whose mother has the other


picture-writes that he has


had several photo's taken


from it, but has not been


successful in getting a good


likeness-but I will again


write & urge him for I


will be truly disappointed


if I cannot be of assistance


to you in your work, which


would be most gratifying to


me & my daughter.

Yours respectfully


Henrietta Lamar
