Description: American artist Samuel Colman (1832-1920) penned and signed this 1866 letter to Mr. A. V. S. Anthony, in which he apologizes for the delay in his thanking Mr. Anthony for his recent gift of books that Colman describes as “such fine copies”, and expresses his desire to “give [him]self the pleasure of calling on [Anthony]” the next time he is in New York.

Colman studied briefly under Asher B. Durand of the Hudson River School of artists and exhibited his first work at the National Academy of Design in 1850. His paintings are part of numerous museum collections, including the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Brooklyn Museum.
