August 12, 1974 Professor William Homer Department of Art History University of Delaware Newark, Delaware 19711 Dear Professor Homer: I want to apologize for the delay in sending you the enclosed Polaroid pictures. I left New York the day after I spoke with you and only returned August 8th. The black and white Polaroid is of an oil painting I have of Pamela Coleman Smith, painted by Alphaeus P. Cole, N.A. in 1906. It is 36'x47' inside the frame (sight size). She is wearing a red dress and has a red headband around her hair. Mr. Cole painted her in London seated on a rug as though she was telling her Carribean stories. You will note the small figures of a lamb and native woman in the lower portion. I took a closer shot of the face which may be of interest to you. I will try to send you a color print at a later date. If you want to reproduce this picture in black and white, or in color, I have no objection. If you need a more professional print in color or black and white I am sure I can arrange it for you. If I can be of further help, please be free to call upon me.
