If Caprice in Purple and Gold: The Golden Screen (YMSM 60) was completed around March 1865 (letter to Fantin quoted in Caprice in Purple and Gold: The Golden Screen (YMSM 60), #08040), then this bill is not to be dated before 30 September 1865, unless JW had Caprice in Purple and Gold: The Golden Screen (YMSM 60) photographed while he was still working on it.
