Fount can stay with his son in New York. It want do for Daly & Colonel Wiliam to go together. They don't love each other.

The astist has a ? of & ? growth - says he is willing to wait some more - So I have asked him to include Ben Palmer & John Russell. I do not expect to go to New York this year.
