    To whom it may concern,
    I am Tjark Ebels, professor of cardiothoracic surgery at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands. I am writing a paper on Eugene Floyd and Delafield Du Bois, who wrote a seminal paper on body surface area in 1916, next year is the centennial. I would tremendously appreciate your help, if you could provide me with portraits (copies of) these distinguished members of the Du Bois family. Particularly a portrait of Delafield, I have not been able to find until now. Obviously I shall acknowledge you when publishing this material. Thank you so much for your help.
    Yours sincerely,
    Tjark Ebels
