Dear William Homer, I found your briefcase on the large lounging chair hiding in a dark corner.I do not see things in dark places as most people do aad I did when younger. I also do not hear well,especially on a telephone , and I never knew the name of your friend excepting that he is the historian of the Lyme Historical Society. I formed the Society and I suppose no one is ever there this time of the year for I never got an answer.I am wanting to get to New York by the end of this month and you could do a good turn as well as yourself by taking your station for the Irving I portrait as well as me with my baggage.You could stay the night here, and next morning early after breakfast start out for New york where I could give you an interesting portrait of Lady Arnold ,wife of Sir Edwin Arnold.The portrait was hung on the line in the Royal Academy London. If you would'nt mind you could share my bedroom at the Hotel ,it has two beds in it, and you could stay for the night; read all about Pam and see the watercolor. Let me know what you decide as soon as you can.In any case I will bring your briefcase to New York. Very Sincerely yours Alphaeus P. Cole
