Handwritten Postcard regarding the Herring Bookplate

Beverly Farms

Sept. 6


Your note forwarded to me here---I think the Herring bookplate most ingenious and congratulate you--- There is no hurry about the Sears Crest. It is for Christmas. Art Jr. suggests several ideas for his bookplate--- which I will write to explain. Sorry about the nurse leaving.


M.J.S.


This postcard was found among others in the Woodward studio and was apparently from someone with the initials 'M. J. S.' whose address at the time was Beverly Farms, Mass. a small town near Pride's Crossing. Note that mention is made of the Herring bookplate.
