REEL 4391: A letter to "Nat & Estelle," written from New York. Sloan thanks them for their gift of fruit, comments on his etching as a respite from "painting problems which are so many!", the opening and small membership of the 17th annual exhibition of the Independents, and the negative reaction to Diego Rivera's "new Detroit murals," which Sloan finds "magnificent."
UNFILMED: A letter to an unidentified recipient, dated Feb. 1915. Sloan invites an order for some of his prints, and encloses a pamphlet listing prices and showing reproductions of several of his etchings.
