Letter from Edward D. Adams to M. Knoedler & Co., March 16, 1925
March 16th, 1925 Messrs. M. Knoedler & Company 14 East 57th Street New York City
Referring to the oil painting “Undertow,” by Winslow Homer, which you sold for me last year, I send herewith the original sketches made by Mr. Homer, when designing the picture. Also herewith his letter of May 12, 1900, transmitting the pictures.
It seems to me that these should properly go with the picture. Judging other people by myself, the owner would naturally be pleased to receive them, and I now place them in your hands for transmission to him.
