"On the River des Peres," by J.R. Meeker. The property of Gen. John McNeil. A quiet nook at one of the bends of this little stream. A spot where one would like to take a book and dream away the live-long day, where idle butterflies come to rest, and where birds congregate to warble their wood-notes wild. [P. 65; exhibited under heading: "Water-Colors."]
