Additional Notes

This sepia print of this chalk drawing is located at the Buckland Historical Society. On the back is written in RSWs writing (below) "'The Surprise' for Miss Mabel Raguse from Robert Strong Woodward." Miss Mabel Raguse (right), a local school teacher, who ardently admired the work of Robert Strong Woodward, purchasing as many of his paintings and chalk drawings as she could afford on her meager salary as a grammar school teacher. We have no additional information about the provenance of this work. For more about Miss Mabel Raguse and her love of RSW's work
