The Mill

Dear Mrs. Gardner,

How very thoughtful of you to send me the fine book with the measured drawings of Stratford Hall. I am delighted with it.

I have for many years now considered Stratford Hall the most handsome home in America and have been there several times.

And I will return again and look forward to meeting you.

With warmest thanks

Sincerely,

Andrew Wyeth
