Autograph Letter Signed, 8vo, on fine stationery stock, New York, NY, February 1, 1916.

This letter is to a Mr. Holman and reads, "I received you letter of the 23rd with the three little photos for which thank you very much. The pictures are very good & interesting. It is a pleasure to hear from you again after the little correspondence of years ago. I have several friends like you that I have never met, and some of them, you amongst the number, seem as real as some others I have known for a long time in the flesh. My exhibition here was successful and the unsold pictures are now at the Albright Gallery, Buffalo. With best wishes believe me, sincerely yours, " and signed in full, "Stephen Parrish". The letter is written in the same type of beautiful scrolling script as his son Maxfield's handwriting. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Absolutely beautiful writing and straight as if there were lines drawn. A great example of the Parrish style.
