  • Transcription

    mood comes through even in photograph, and I can well believe the “Harvest Field” is under eclipse. If, as you think, the drawing is done direct from nature, it is a remarkable production. With only a photo as a guide I am unable to make up my mind on the point, but I daresay a sight of the drawing – to which I am much looking forward – will soon settle hesitation.
    To think of it lying still and lovely these hundred and thirty years awaiting your hungry desire and my wistful envy! And what a contrast – this drawing of 1805 and the letters of 1826.
