(Editor's Note --Previous, I had only known of two children by Frank Millet and his wife.   Bonita (in the letter below) clarified that there were more. Actually it turns out there were four -- one lost in infancy.)

You state that Frank [Millet]. . . had 2 children: Kate and Laurence.  They had 3: John Alfred Parsons Millet was also their son, named in honor of Sargent and painter Alfred Parsons, both part of the Broadway group.  John Alfred Parsons Millet was painted by Sargent as a small child (painting in Manoogian collection I believe, or was).
