Durand, A. B.
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 27
"On receiving these direful tidings, the valiant Peter started from his seat--dashed the pipe he was smoking against the back of the chimney--thrust a prodigious quid of tobacco into his left cheek--pulled up his galligaskins--strode up and down the room, humming, as was customary with him when in a passion, a hideous northwest ditty." Knickerbocker's New-York, Book vi. chap. 2. (Reed collection.) [Pp. 4-5.]
