Works of this nature are never worth the doing. They cost too much time, and after all, are not to be compared to the originals. It is not so with Indian Ink landscape, or ruins--if well done in Indian Ink, the engravings are but the copies. The works in question are evidence of astonishing patience and faithfulness--both virtues--and a disposition that no difficulties could intimidate. [P. 40.]
First Exhibition and Fair of the Maine Charitable Mechanic Association, held at the City Hall, in the City of Portland, from Sept. 21 to Oct. 6, 1838. Portland: Published by the Board of Managers, for the Association. 1838.
