|Happy Anniversary to E and R|
|The letter the Collector wrote to the Artist|
Dear Madelyn . . .
I would be surprised if you were still able to walk . . . you have totally outdone yourself with the orchid kimono,
and we just know there is nothing left . . .
in my ever-lovin', I have never witnessed anything more creative or beautiful and you should be ecstatic with your own handiwork . . .
and by-the-way, R adores it as well . . . he was shocked and delighted so you are the woman of the hour in our household . . .
we had no trouble placing it in our collection (it could have happily gone anywhere), and the robe is smiling . . .
it will eventually end up in the Mobile Museum of Art in Mobile, Alabama BUT no time soon . . .
again thanks for everything including the timing for our anniversary . . . love & kisses,
