Flowers left for Thomas Eakins
I went to see the exhibit of your work at the Metropolitan Museum today. You are still the greatest of American painters and one of the best of the 19th century. For the Gross Clinic, for those marvelously lucid rowing pictures, for all those great portraits that make most other 19th century portraiture look vacuous, for having the courage to stick to your vision despite so much persecution and disappointment, you should stand up in your grave and take a bow: Bravo! Bravo! Bravo!
