"(Deceased) Died at Catskill, N.Y., February 11, 1848. During the last two years of his life, the artist devoted his time to the painting of five pictures: The first representing a young pilgrim being guided by an evangelist toward the cross, while his companion commences his journey in the light of the present world. The second picture represents the sorrow and trial of the Christian pilgrim, who meets the storm as he travels on the verge of the abyss. In the third picture, the artist follows the pilgrim of the cross to his triumph, when the vision of glory is disclosed on the mountain top. The last two paintings of the series, showing the sad choice of the man of the world, were never completed by the painter."[P. 4.]
