LONDON LETTER.

In the latest issue of the Yellow Book Mr.
John Lane gives a drawing by a young man of
genius, Mr. Patten Wilson. This is the first
of his work to see the light. It is a battle
piece of great nobleness and stateliness, show-
ing exquisite line drawing as well as great dec-
orative beauty and wealth of detail. There is
a poetic fitness in the work of this young maker
of knights and heroes appearing side by side
with the clever deviltries of Mr. Aubrey Beards-
ley. They are the antithesis of each other, and
it is easy to prophesy whose work will go far-
thest and last longest. Mr. Patten Wilson's
work has the seed of greatness in it.
