    National Historic Site Connecticut

New York City - September 1904

New York City, September 22, 1904

The artist Albert Pinkham Ryder to Julian Alden Weir:

That the fish will thrive, and there will be no more 25 lb. turtles. Almost a sea monster, wasn’t it.

That your work will answer.

And your farms too, and your haystacks grow, and rocks disappear, and everything be as you wish.

Did You Know?
