Bob's 90th Birthday present from his
daughter Sarah Hutton

Dear Katja
As promised I attach a copy of the picture we have had done of Puffin to give to my father for his 90th Birthday.
The head shot is Puffin as a 13 years old boy and of course the one of him standing is of him as a young man and as you will appreciate the photograph that you so kindly took of him has been used as the reference.
Love Sarah
