520 |aLetter written Sept. 18, 1908 by William H. Holmes to Elbridge Ayer Burbank, western painter and illustrator.|bIn this letter Holmes responds to Burbank's earlier inquiry regarding the purchase of his oil painting "Snake Dance." Burbank lived and travelled extensively throughout the southwest between 1897 and 1914 painting prominent Indian chiefs, groups of Indians, and ceremonial dances. He lived for some time among the Hopi Indians in Arizona where he witnessed the Snake Dance. In his reply, Holmes informs Burbank that Congress unfortunately has not allocated any funds for the purchase of art work.
