My Dear Stone
We are unanimous.
The drawing of Milly on the chair, is charming. I cannot tell you how much the little composition and expression please me. Do that, by all means.
--I fear she must have a little cap on. There is something coming in the last part, about her having had a dead child, which makes it yet more desirable than the existing text does, that she should have that little matronly sign about her.
--Unless the artist is obdurate indeed, and then he'll do as he likes.
I am delighted to hear that you have your eye on her in the Student's room. You will really, pictorially, make the little woman whom I love.
Kate and Georgy send their kindest remembrances. I write hastily to save the Post.
Ever My Dear Stone
Frank Stone Esquire.
