Dear Mr. Hogarth, I am writing to thank you for kindly replacing the light that we had attached to a very fine Thomas Cole painting entitled "Prometheus Bound" that now hangs here in Thomas Cole's home. The new light works wonderfully and illuminates the entire surface of the large oil painting quite evenly and very well. Our staff and visitors to this historic site are most grateful! Our mutual friend, and one of your clients, Henry Martin joins me in sending you many thanks. I would be delighted to send you a photograph of the painting with the light installed if you would kindly email me back with your mailing address, or an email where I can attach an image. The lit painting looks just marvelous!

Praise for our picture lights indeed.
