Postcard from Richmond Barthe who was living in Jamaica to his friend "Dot" Dorothy Patterson in New York, telling her that he had "at last "realized my life long dream' and that he had had his "first exhibition of paintings." Barthe seems pleased that the work was "well received" and that the show was "a great success."
