Additional Details

". . . I believe the photograph of me which is the most generally approved was lately taken by Pach Brothers of New York. It was very well reproduced in McClure's Magazine (I think two years ago or upwards) in connection with an article on the Chicago Strike and its treatment by the General Government. . . ."
The portrait mentioned is likely that taken in May 1904 by the Pach Brothers and published in the July 1904 issue of McClure's Magazine facing the first page of Grover Cleveland's article, "The Government in the Chicago Strike of 1894."
