Dear Mr. Shoemaker,
Enclosed is a very rough drawing of the Adam and Eve. I have not attempted to put in the detail such as the fruit and leaves on the tree etc.
But this will give you the size and placement of the figures. The lower third of the drawing is plum colored, the fruit is red and yellow.
D. Edward Elder
1822 Green St.
