QuotationHowever, there is one thing which I treasure and which you also will like. It is an old magazine containing an article on my Father's painting and several reproductions both in color and black and white. It is an old beat-up magazine, and may be in worse shape still by the time it reaches you. But I think you will agree on its worth. Most of the later pictures were done in places I remember very well. The Marseilles one was the view from a room in a little hotel where we stayed on the Vieux Port, and I remember lying around reading Kipling's Just-So stories while Father was painting at the window.
