This splendid head has been pronounced by those who knew Washington, to be the best likeness in the country, and is said to approximate more to the perfection of Houdon's celebrated Bust, than any other Portrait. Stewart was heard to say that, wherein he deviated from Houdons' Bust, he deviated from the likeness of Washington. The history of this Portrait is well known to the proprietor. [P. 11.]
