Title Basket of Chips, page 036
Description A Basket of Chi/u We arrived at the hotel early and found every one up and talking of search parties and dragging the lake. They knew of the cloud burst and were much concerned, but her father showed no nervousness and told them we knew enough to take care of ourselves. Soon after this I left for America to earn our wedding stake. I opened a studio in Salt Lake City and was soon handling a large class of pupils. At the end of the year I sold my pictures by auction and so secured enough means to return to Europe.`" I met the family in Rotterdam, and we all returned to Paris. HONEYMOON After the usual legalities were complied with, we were mar- ried on the twenty fifth of June 1891 at the sixth arrondis[s}e- ment at Paris? Our trunk and hand bag were packed, her things with mine, all her linen and dainty personal belongings. We had railroad tickets for Concarno and one hour after the ceremony we were driven to the station and goodbyes were said all around. ?a 22 Harwood was in Salt Lake City for the 1890-91 school year and "was fortunate in organizing a large class" and taught art "in the French manner" or "as in the French schools." At the end of the year, Harwood returned to Paris with Herman H. Haag (see Part Two, note 11). Hmwood Art Exhibition, 4; Leek, "James T.

The Harwood mar- riage, a civil ceremony, took place in the sixth division of the Paris department. 24 The Harwoods were headed for Brittany, an ancient province and duchy of France consisting of the northwestern peninsula of that country. Brittany con- sists of two distinct zones, an inland zone and a maritime zone. The coast is much indented, especially along the English channel, and there are numerous fish- ing ports. Paul Gauguin (1838-1903) began his neoimpressionist painting at Pont- Aven, Brittany, Harwood's ultimate destination for his honeymoon in 1891. Many years later, a neoimpressionist style would be Harwood's ultimate destina- tion as a painter. 36
