Mr. Edwin C. Shaw
Akron, Ohio

My dear Mr. Shaw,

Among the pictures painted by me, and owned by you, you have two of the choicest canvases I have signed.

The “Open Sea” is undoubtedly my most successful Marine, and the “Rhages Jar”, a picture of very fine quality. Both of these Paintings are painted as well as I have ever done.

“Win [believe this was meant to say Weirs] Place at Windham” is also a carefully executed Landscape, good in harmoney, and thoroughly studied, finished direct from nature.

“Surf” is a study from nature, good in light and quite fine in color.

“Pots and Pigeons” and “Chrysanthemums” as both early work.

“All these pictures represents my painting in all stages, and I think you will not tire of any of these.

With kindest regards,
believe me
Sincerely yours,
Emil Carlsen
