One of the earliest efforts of Mr. Fraser's pencil, being taken from memory, after the death of a lovely boy, aged six years, a son of Major Alex. Garden. Mr. Fraser, who had seen the child in 1797, was at the time on a visit to the Gibbes family, on John's Island, and one of the ladies having expressed regret that they had no likeness of him, he painted this, and presented it to her.
