A charming and characteristic watercolor by Horgan, depicting one of the old Lackawanna steam ferries, enroute across the Hudson river, with a hint of the NY skyline in the background. Signed in the lower right corner of the image, "Paul." Horgan utilized the drawing as a Christmas gift: it is titled on the lower panel of the folder, and inscribed on the inside of the folder: "All Reed Merry Christmas Tokens Herewith: the INCLUSIVE ALL- FAMILY gift is to follow in late delivery." The recipients were among Horgan's closest friends during his years as writer-in- residence at Wesleyan University.
