"25 x 30. One of the best works in his early style; in color remarkably fine - a most excellent specimen. In the course of time the early figure subjects of the American school of art will be more highly prized than at present." [Price and buyers noted in contemporary hand. The same hand has crossed out the date "1849" in commentary and replaced this with "1839." See serial 03060036 for companion picture.]
