Biddle of Philadelphia’s Civic Club: “I believe that the public opinion has not had an opportunity to express itself on this subject, and am therefore sending copies of this statement to about three hundred representative citizens, with the request that they will express their views…” The collection is now at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
