The citizens of New-York have to lament that the health of this most eminent surgeon and excellent man, has induced him to reside in Europe, where his knowledge and talents are duly appreciated by the first men who are there distinguished for science. This portrait is a most perfect resemblance. Henry Inman, V.P.N.A. Mr. Inman is a native of this state, born at Utica in 1801. A pupil of John W. Jarvis. He distringuished himself both as a miniature painter and in oil. Mr. Inman has confined himself to painting in oil; and is happily engaged both in portrait and historical composition. His portraits are eminent for truth and grace. (See Hist. of Arts of Des.) [P. 7.]
