Sunday, February 1, 1891

     Did not see W. today. I have been away in Germantown. Adler was very cordial in referring to W.: asked me to take his message of love, etc.

     Missed this the other day: "Mr. Eakins' Walt Whitman is by odds and far the best portrait yet made of an heroic figure in our letters. . . ." (Philadelphia Press, January 29, 1891.)

     Talcott Williams probably wrote it. W. was "pleased" and said, "I have no doubt Eakins' picture deserves all they say about it."
