1.  [1882/1884]
Dated from butterfly signature. It is possible that this letter relates to the painting of three portraits of Elden, including Portrait of H. R. Eldon (1) (YMSM 243) which date approximately from this period.

2.  Matthew Robinson Elden
Matthew Robinson Elden (1839-1885), artist [more]. JW referred to him with the mock Italian diminutive, 'Eldoni'.
