A presentation in the artist's hand reads: "I have embossed this 7th volume of my book especially for my friend, Judy Severson, who so tenderly puts a piece of her loving heart in her prints. Judy, you have been an inspiration. I look forward to our continued friendship and 'breakfast chats". Mary, Christmas, 1985." Stent was a California artist, born in San Mateo in 1909.
