This Bust early engaged the notice of the Committee. It was considered by them an excellent cast; preserving the likeness with great truth, and very skilfully modelled and cast. It is believed, by the Committee, to be the first attempt, on such a scale, in this Country, and deserves especial regard from the Association. Mr. Ball Hughes, who modelled the original, has fully sustained his high reputation, and deserves distinguished notice. Gold Medal. [P. 37.]
