|Commentary:||In a letter to A. C. McClurg and Co. on September 21, 1914, Schoonover responded to a gift sent to him by the editor: “Please accept my sincere thanks for the two copies of Marmaduke of Tennessee. The reproductions are very good, especially that one used as the frontispiece. I think ‘The Charge’ is the best thing we have done in the way of book illustration.” (archives, correspondence)|
