RSW's Diary Comments

“Prior to 1925. The inside of Herbert Keach’s barn (now burnt). A 27 x 30 of the same subject was made before my Redgate fire—1922--- in which it was burnt. After the fire I went to the barn and made this 36 x 42. Exhibited it largely, till finally it was bought from my exhibition at Mrs. Lyman’s house, Beacon St., Boston, by Mrs. W. Scott Fitz (daughter-in-law of Oliver Wendell Holmes). Upon her death it went to relatives, a Mr. and Mrs. James C. Hopkins of Dover, Mass. who now own it. I later made a 27 x 30 of this same subject titled New Hay.”
