My dear Mr. Gilchrist
You have a rare opportunity to join a distinguished group of art patrons in honoring one of the most eminent artists in this country.
The occasion is the presentation to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, of John Sloan's fine canvas, "The Lafayette."
This picture, which immortalizes a historic New York landmark, is being purchased by popular subscription for the sum of five thousand dollars. More than half of this amount has already been subscribed by artists, friends and pupils of John Sloan.
Should you wish to participate in this tribute to a great artist, please mail your contribution to Mrs. Juliana R. Force at No. 8 West 8th Street.
Very truly yours,
Duncan Phillips, Chairman
Mrs. Harry Payne Whitney
Mrs. George Otis Hamlin
