From a letter to Alice Burchfield from Charles Burchfield
Monday, December 31, 2012
Little Catherine is sure a ‘peach’ – I do wish you could see her. We want to photograph her but it seems as if to do the necessary things requires so much effort. She is a nice armful already & I like to hold her & talk foolish to her & feel how soft she is.
Charles Burchfield in a letter to his mother, Alice Burchfield
