Mr. W.H. Smith/Dear Sir
In this letter to W. Hinckle Smith, a Philadelphia businessman, Russell describes two important oil paintings he displayed at New York's Folsom Galleries: The Range Mother (1908) and Sun Worshippers (1910).
Letter addressed to:
Mr. W. Hinkle Smith
Franklin Bank Building
Mr. W. H Smith
It is hardley worth while to tell you a cow man the meaning of the picture a Range mother as you know well enough what a fighting cow is especially one with a calf
but for the people who dont know
on the ranges I knew on long hot drives to the round up grounds a calf would some times get leg weary in these cases the calf was roped ear marked an dropped with its mother to be picked up an branded later. in this painting the mother has objected
The Sun Worshipers all planes Indians [?] prayed to the sun and were much more devout than their Christian white brothers
This painting represents the advance of a hunting party
the old man is asking the sun for success in the buffalo run
the seen is in the sun river or as the Indians call it Medicine River valley in Montana in the background is sun river buttes Im old times this wase one of the [?] hunting grounds of the Blackfeet
Yours verry truly
C M Russell
