The collection is one over which we could linger for a whole day, and still find fresh beauties to admire. It is almost impossible to conceive anything more lovely than the faces of the darling creatures whom these artists have been fortunate enough to have into their studio and detain sufficiently long to obtain a perfect duplicate of their living selves, perhaps all the more perfect as they are speechless. We would call special attention to the pose, detail, and exquisite finish of the picture of the lady in the train (not locomotive) on the wall on the left. If anything more perfect is on exhibition in the Fair we should like to see it--thats all% [P. 136.]
