David Sullivan sobre Richard Benedict Van Horne:
"Like his father and his Aunt Mary, Benny was handy with brush and pen. His letters home from Holbrook's Military School were frequently adorned with humorous pen and pencil sketches of school life, and by the time he was in his late teens they showed considerable ability. He was quite proud of this talent. He produced not only the "Covenhoven Follies," already mentioned, but also two similar but lesser quality works called "A Basketful of Pups" and "Getting an Earful."
