Notes:

The next are the Columbiad paintings, eleven in number, taken from different scenes in that elegant and patriotic poem of Joel Barlow, lately published in this city. They are each thirteen and an half inches long by ten and an half inches wide, painted by smirke, and in a style of delicacy and high finish, which has not been seen in this country; the compositions are sublime and poetic, the colouring rich, the tonings warm and harmonious; these works relating chiefly to the history of our country are extremely interesting and may be considered as gems in the art.
