My dear Mr* 3mlthi
I am wondering if you have found something more
about Melvlna Batson who painted the Peed and Elliott
portraits in your museum. I am very anxious to find
out the places and dates of her birth and death. I
assume relatives in Hew Castle can get these for you.
I am trying to wind up this project as soon as
possible, so I will appreciate your cooperation.
Wilbur D. Peat,
Director of the Museum
