From a portrait painted by Gilbert Stuart at Philadelphia, in May, 1800, now in the pos session of Bowdoin College, Brunswick, Me.
Stuart painted Jefferson's portrait from life three times. This superb picture was the first of the three paintings, and was the one preferred by the illustrious statesman, who paid Stuart $100 for it. Stuart, however, as was his practise, sold the picture twice and turned it over to Governor James Bowdoin, who bequeathed it to the College named after him.
