Additional Notes

Boston Globe, March 10, 1931 by A. J. Philpott

"...a picture that should be in the 'old state house', for it shows one of the few architectural bits of old Boston along Union Street which carry back to the 18th century. And it is painted in just the right key."


Note the above critique refers to the oil painting, of which this drawing was a copy.
