1876
Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. [not numbered]
This view exhibits a placid bay or inlet with settlements on either shore, and in the extreme distance may be faintly seen a city. On the left a sail boat is being towed into its little haven for the night, and on the bluff in the fore ground, two old men appear to be conversing and enjoying the tranquil scene. One is seated near a couple of tall trees which stand boldly out from the picture; and on the right two men are mooring a row-boat, near which on the margin of the water stands a cottage partly concealed by trees. That humid misty atmosphere peculiar to the low country floats over the prospect, which is glowing with the warm tint of a declining sun. [P. 6.]
