RSW's Diary Comments

A tall upright canvas of special dimensions of which I am not quite sure. Tall young elm in background of Mrs Gertrude Smith's very old house. house showing with many chimneys, back of and to right of the center elm. Painted especially for a client of Harold Grieves in California. Sent out there, supposedly sold. But the people for some reason didn't buy it Soon after, it came back (I think in 1938) It was purchased in Manchester, VT by Mr. and Mrs. P.H.B Frelinghuysen of Morristown, New Jersey.

Comment on a sepia print:

“Owned by Mr. and Mrs. Francis M. Whitehouse, 340 Park Ave. New York.”
