There were on exhibition, by Rogers of New York, and loaned by the kindness of Messrs. Jones, Wool & Sutherland, a collection of beautiful statuettes, in plaster, illustrating events of soldier life in the late Rebellion. As works of art they are worth more than a passing notice, exhibiting as they do a force of character and expression, and truth to nature, that tells the story far better than the artist could have done in word. A number of them are worthy of being executed, life size in marble. [P. 65.]
