Summary:
Letters from Van Sloun to his family, written during his travels in Europe and while living in New York City. In a letter to his sisters, Josephine and May, Van Sloun wishes that he had more money to rent a better studio and place to live in New York, writing that as a younger man living the bohemian life style is fine, but as one gets older one likes certain comforts. In another letter he discusses his teaching at the Art Students League, and in another letter to his mother and sisters, he encloses a postcard he received form Carl Bohnen and Paul Manship, whom he was visiting in Paris.
