Description: handwritten on verso: Nelson took this one happy Sunday in May- away off in Hawley- expressly to send to you. I wanted you to see the buggy - but i have it all camoflaged with coats, canvases, etc. Even Thomas a Kempis looks poor - and gaunt. Where as he is a large and beautiful thorobred - the best horse (professionals say) in the country. None seem to especially care for the picture of me - but altho I look German! I rather like it. The cigar spoils my mouth - but any way you can see I am strong and husky this Spring and far from an invalid. I always paint - I never sit with art work - nelson this noon - bad cooked our dinner of Hamburg steak over a fire of birch bark. It was a great day!
