"See no. 103. One of Mr. Morgan's charming pictures of child-life. This represents two peasant children - of brittany, maybe - one of whom is initiating her younger sister into the mysteries of the stitch. The little one looks on with deeply interested expression. There is a very pleasing harmony in the colouring of the picture and it is effective in its technique." [P. 80; see serial 03860103 for commentary on artist. Under illustration appears note: "from National Academy Notes, 1884."]
