An unfinished letter to Wood from Albert Pinkham Ryder, Oct. 2, 1899, in which Ryder comments on his painting, and updates Wood of his progress. In it he writes "an ounce of poetry added to a picture is worth many pounds of paint." Enclosed with the letter is a note to Wood "This is a letter I think he wrote you and forgot to mail years ago," presumably written by Louise Fitzpatrick. Also included is a clipping from THE SUN regarding a Ryder memorial exhibition, March 17, 1918, annotated "compliments of W.J. McGurie."
