Here is a copy of the guest list for the Fox Lake summer place from July 1912. Note who is there: Edgar Payne, Carl Krafft, E. Martin Hennings, J. Jeffrey Grant, Harry Engle, among others. A helluva lineup to paint with.

Also touching is the listing (at no. 17): “Miss Palmer, with Payne.” That must be Elsie Palmer, later Mrs. Elsie Palmer Payne. They were married in 1912.
