Scope and Contents note:
Scattered documentation of Sargent's later career are found in these letters to portrait commission patrons, many of whom were also personal and social friends. Topics discussed in the letter include current works in progress, replies to invitations, and other general social news. Many of the letters were written to Mrs. Charles Hunter, an English friend and patron, who sat for several portraits by Sargent. Also found are letters from Sargent to friend Edith Blaney, whose husband was landscape artist Dwight Blaney. Other notable letters include a brief one to Henry Mills Alden, an editor at Harper's Magazine concerning a photograph of Sargent for an article by Henry James, three letters to Henry Marquand regarding Sargent's work on portraits of him and his father, and a letter to Lawrence Barrett requesting to show a portrait in an exhibition. There are also several letters written by Sargent to people whose names are illegible and have not been identified. Also found is a photograph mounted on a postcard of Sargent later in life depicting him painting outdoors and a photograph of his self portrait.
