"The subject of this piece needs no comment. The young student is busily employed in getting her lesson by heart, that she may be ready when called upon by the master; and her mind is so entirely occupied by her present laudable purpose, as to render her almost unconscious of the importunities of a boy, who is seen behind, touching her on the shoulder, and apparently endeavoring to persuade her to throw aside her horn-book and go to play." [P. 5.]
Gallery of Pictures, selected from the most admired productions of the Old Masters, Doggett's Repository, No. 16 Market-Street.
