Drawing, Pastile [sic].--To an exquisite production exhibited by W.J. Hinchey, St. Louis, was awarded the first premium, Diploma and five dollars. The subject was a grave one, yet full of interest, and it was completely mastered by the artist. It represented a recluse reading his missal; a lamp is burning by his side, his eyes are fixed intently on his book, and his features are moulded in that calm composure emblematic of peace at the heart; his beard is blanched, and his head is hoary with the frost of time. The drawing was much admired. [P. 99.]
