Abstract:

Discussing Simon's father as he is close to death; saying "I have a thousand things to reproach and shame myself for and mourn for in the pain they gave my father, with a grief far worse than the shame--while you have only well done duty to him and his unhindered and untortured pride in you for the after-glow of your twilight time;" saying he will visit them when it is not so cold; saying that "Herkomer has done a most precious drawing of me; and Boehm a bust of extreme and, more then perhaps I quite like--historical veracity--it is like a cast from life. I greatly rejoice in the better personal acquaintance with both the painter and sculptor."
