"LELY, (Sir Peter), born at Soest in Westphalia in 1617. He resided in England all the latter part of his life, and succeeded Van Dyck as the best painter of portraits after him. His pencil was light and free, his colouring lovely; the airs of his head and his figures amiable and graceful." No. 9.--PORTRAIT OF WILLIAM, PRINCE OF ORANGE--in armour, with a Marshal's baton in the right hand. A good specimen of the master and an interesting portrait. [P. 13.]
