"One of the most appealing canvases, Bill’s Christmas Mail, a boy seated at a card table intent on an obviously engrossing letter beneath a tipped-up lamp shade with a huge dog contentedly reposing at his feet, possesses a number of interesting linear patterns all woven into the solid texture of the design. 
But the remarkable feature of the painting is the complete realization of the boy’s careless attitude combined with his intense preoccupation. The painting of the hands is notable — and as for the feet, who but Waldo Peirce would have shown their abandoned awkwardness! It is good to know that the artist is taking his art more seriously, but as good to know that he still records the homely, human aspect of his subjects.”
