G.W. has sent Bennett the two paintings he commissioned. John Purdue, who originally purchased them, allowed them to be sent to Bennett, and he will take copies instead. This will allow G.W. to leave immediately for California to be present at his brother's deathbed. G.W. will finish Purdue's copies while there. Bennett can also purchase the portraits of Brouillette and Kick-ke-se-qua for $100, by writing to Gordon Ball. Requests Bennett telegraph him payment for these two works, as G.W. hopes to leave for California on May 28.
