Hon. Wm. M. Evarts,
Wall street, New York.
Your portrait has been received. We are all pleased with it, both as a likeness, and as a work of art. It is on the wall of the office, on the right of the fireplace, occupying the space between Mr. Stanton's and Judge Hoar's, and Lincoln's have been removed into another room. Stanton's is over the fireplace,— yours next on the right, and Judge Hoar's on the right of yours.
Mr. bill has not been received. Will you be kind enough to request him to forward it to this office?
Very respectfully, yours,
A. T. Akerman,
Mr. Evarts' portrait.
