In Plaster. This is probably the largest work of the kind which has been attempted in this State. It has evidently been done in haste; yet, though it has the disadvantage of not being completely finished, and is defective in many particulars, it bears the impress of fine artistic talent. The head is an excellent casting, and exhibits the lofty and generous expression we should look for in the face of La Fayette. [P. 101.]
