"Never have we seen more effect produced from any painting than this. We are informed the proprietor is to dispose of it for five hundred dollars, but hope the report is without foundation; as it is certainly among the best pictures in the gallery, and we take the liberty to remind him he should rather increase than diminish his number." [P. 302.]
New-York, April 6, 1802. Columbian Gallery. At the Pantheon, No. 80, Greenwich-Street, near the Battery.
