23 Nassau Street [New York City], 1898 May 20. For Marygold & Yellow Jacket, and hope they will prove satisfactory. Let me know very frankly, however, if they do not. It was a surprise to me that you did not take Witch & Glideaway, for they are very little smaller and are so much faster, as a pair, Glideaway in particular being a really very fast horse. Which would enable you to rid yourself at any time of any one of them, leaving you what you like best.
