2pp. on folded sheet on her "Cogshill, Allen Lane, Philadelphia," letterhead, dated 1925. "My dear Marion Deane- I shall be very proud & happy to be among your distinguished Company of Autographs . 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 feel greatly honored to be permanently in this company. Sincerely yours, Jessie WIllcox Smith. April 19th, 1925." Written in a period where Smith was slolwing down in her book illustration, but increasing her work as a portrait artist, and her notoriety in the art world as well as general society had, by this time, been cemented. Smith letters are quite scarce.
