"11 x 13. This exquisite picture was painted expressly for Mr. Cozzens. Leslie is acknowledged by all to be the best and most characteristic delineator of Shakespearian character that ever lived, and it is enough to say of this picture that it has all the beauty of expression and color of a Leslie. One of his pictures was sold in this city with the Wolfe collection, sent to London, and after Leslie's death is said to have been disposed of for a thousand Guineas." [Price and buyer noted in contemporary hand.]
