I just received another fascinating email about my deceased (artist) great grandmother Eugenia Witzleben Grant:

Dear John,

My grandmother, Lucile Stair, was a great friend of Eugenia Grant. She

lived in San Marino, California, and I heard many stories over the

years about their wild card parties. I have three pastels of your

great-grandmother hanging in my home in Madison, WI. They are all

still lifes of flowers in vivid colors... I just wanted you to know that we love these

pictures, the largest of which is currently being reframed. My sister

in Temecula has another Eugenia Grant picture, a small painting called

"The Sheik" that might be a watercolor, but I'm not sure. It is a very

different genre and is exquisite. These were all given to our


Best of luck with your own artistic endeavors and hope to hear from you.
