"Notice. I was advised, in order to "please the country people," to have the drapery of the figures colored bright, showy, and gaudy. I decided to follow the painting in this respect, believing that all persons of correct taste would prefer soft, mellow, and subdued colors, such as the subject and scene demanded. The wisdom of this decision is verified ... by the venerable author of the original painting ... Mr. Peale gave me the following unqualified certificate: Philadelphia, Nov. 16, 1859. I have seen the chromo-lithographic engraving of my painting ... recently executed for Dr. G.Q. Colton, (the present proprietor,) by Sarony, Major & Knapp, of New York, and can certify that it is an accurate and admirable copy ... It is well known that the usual price for engravings of the size and quality of this is $5 ... if I charged $5, I could only sell about 5000 copies; while, if I charge but one dollar, I can sell 100,000. ... Address G.Q. Colton, no. 37 Park Row, New York. Post Office Box 3391."--leaf [2]. Includes "Editorial notices."
