Excerpt from Portraits of Patrick Henry

I knew Mr. William Wirt Henry personally. He was one of the orators at the centennial celebration held in Independence Hall on July 2, 1876, in commemoration of the introduction into Congress of the Resolutions respecting Independancy, when a congress of authors convened, each one bringing a biographical sketch of a revolutionary worthy, and as the sequel will show the history he gave shortly priorto this occasion of the Sully portrait of Patrick Henry was the correct one and the story he subsequently remembered having been told by his father an apocryphal one. This is made clear and emphatic by the production of the original miniature that belonged to the syme-fleming family and compar ing it with the Sully painting and the latter again with an engraving of Dance's portrait of Captain Cook.
