Joseph Pennell letter to Mr. William Henry Rideing, 1909 Jan 26.

Pennell details his process of printmaking and explains that he did it from nature 'on the spot' without reversing; therefore the print is reversed. He adds that no one would take the trouble to reverse out of doors and neither Whistler or Haden did so. He facetiously says, that if Aldrich would stand on his head and look at a mirror, his print would be in reverse. He explains that in the James article the print was photographed twice and concludes by saying that Rideing should not write on North American Review stationery because it made him "think that I had become famous and you wanted an article."
