The Irish-American lawyer and collector, John Quinn, first met the Yeats clan in 1902, thus beginning a lifelong friendship and support. The inscription from Quinn to his sister reads "To Julia: Yeats wrote in this book and gave it to me for you the morning he breakfasted with me at the Carlton Hotel; after which he drove with me to the Waterloo station to see me off, on my way to Southampton, where I took the St. Paul for New York. I was with him a great deal in Dublin and London during the preceding three weeks and have many very pleasant memories of our days together. His father thought you might come to Dublin with me and wanted to paint your portrait: so you see you are known in Dublin. Your Brother John No. 1 West 87 St, November 24, 1904"
