He writes to Mr. C. Ernest Cooke, "Dear Mr. Cooke, Thank you for considering my name on your annual regional show. Unfortunately by that time I will have left Washington and be back in Provincetown. As I am prest for time, to work up enough paintings for my exhibition, I will be unable to accept your offer. Wishing the best success to your exhibition. Sincerely yours," and signed, "Karl Knaths".
