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
