To the same gentleman was accorded a similar premium for Statuette in Clay, Plaster, or Terra Cotta, original.--This was a statuette of Col. Benton, and was justly much admired. The attire, the features, and general make up, was all Col. Benton. The attitude of the great Senator was most happily chosen for the moulding of the figure. The outstretched arm, the commanding position, the expression of feature, all showed that the artist represented him when making one of his great forensic efforts in the Halls of Congress. [P. 96.]
