Henry Williams, Esq.
Counsellor at Law.
Since my letter of the 18th inst. yours of the 17th inst. has been received. I shall desire to have the picture made as you propose. The size of the canvas which I mentioned will be preferable, as it corresponds with most of the other pictures in the office.
You are authorized to contract with the artist for the picture without a frame at the cost of one hundred and fifty dollars. Whenever the picture is sent, with the bill, I will remit the money.
Very truly yours,
E. R. Hoar,
Judge Berrien's picture
