I am not awfully intimate with Kings & Queens, Princes, Dukes, Presidents, Statesmen & the like-- though I can claim a few noted artists & authors among my friends. So I shall fel greatly honored to be permantently in their company. Sincerely yours, Jessie Willcox Smith, April 19th, 1925." A great example of Smith's cordial wit, as well her wonderfully artful cursive script. Fine.
