"Capture of Daniel Boone's Daughter," in the Pettes & Leathe collection, by Weimar. A canoe has just reached the wooded shore of a river; one Indian is pulling it upon the bank; another, also on the shore, grasps the arm of the fair but agonized captive, to draw her on land; and a third wild warrior is standing up in the canoe with his rifle partly raised, as he scans the opposite bank. There is a vista over river and woodland, with a yellow light flooding the background. The arrangement of the group is admirable and suggestive, but the whole picture is inferior is some points to others of Weimar's. [P. 77.]
