WASHINGTON painted by R. Peale. This portrait, distinguished by the approbation of Washington's most intimate friends, accompanied the artist to Rome. It has safely returned with him--and he will be pardoned for the sentiments which prompt him to introduce it here as the companion of his voyage. In his painting room in Walnut Street, during the few days it was to be seen there, the crowds that visited it, if they did not bear evidence to its merit, demonstrated their veneration for the sublime being it represented. Comparatively few have had an opportunity of seeing it, and the feeling of love and admiration for the object of it has suffered no diminution in the city which was his home in the period of his most exalted dignity. [P. 16.]
