Creators Lewis, Graceanna, 1821-1912
Description Addressed to "Dear Friend." Lewis talks about her niece Ellen Fussell (Cope) and transcribes a poem she wrote. She has been doing a lot of painting and says her nephew Charles Lewis Fussell, a prominent artist has been helping her improve her skills and also talks about some of his recent paintings. She describes observing a pair of cardinals and adds that what she has seen written about their behavior has been confirmed through her observations. Lewis affirms that she ''has not yet given up [her] scientific studies'' and is working on her charts, though she is not sure they will ever be published.
