Original
Dokumentindhold

Thomas Donaldson skriver til Elisabeth Jerichau Baumann (EJB), at de er kede af at høre, hvordan hun er kommet til skade med sin ene hånd. Men de er taknemmelige over, at hun kan skrive til dem trods alt.
Donaldsons barnebarn Mariette skal portrætteres af EJB, men selv om de nu må udskyde maleriet, vil den lille pige holde deres aftale om at sidde model. Donaldson glæder sig over, at forsinkelsen af maleriet gør det muligt for dem at mødes.


Bolton Gardens Russellsqr.
15 June 1858

Dear Madame Jerichau
            We are indeed conceived to learn the accident which has occurred to you & think it very kind of you to keep us in mind under such circumstances. We presume // it must be your left hand that is injured or you would not be able to write so beautifully[.]
            Your little sitter shall keep the appointment you are so kind as to make for, & we are rejoiced that // the delay will afford us the opportunity of meeting again.
            My ladies & myself write in very sincerest regard & believe me my dr Madam
            Most faithfully yrs
                  Tho. L: Donaldson
