There is to Boji Een at the rooms of the historical society second Avenue Corner of eleventh Street an original portrait of exceptional interest a likeness from life of the celebrated Davy Crockett of Kentucky painted by a. L. Denote and subsequently engraved by a. B. Durand. It is in water color but in done with wonderful boldness and spirit and is one of those picture in which the beholder feels sure he bios the faithful image of the person represented. This u envy Crockett beyond All peradventure every Lineament is his the whole Man is before u and for its accuracy of portraiture we do not need the autograph authentication of it which the cartoon bears 1 Olavo tills Rule for others Whon i no Deil e always Miro you re right then go Abend but undoubtedly tie famous Ristich and Apo them of Crockett in his own handwriting gives a great additional value to this powerful presentment of the Man and for a genuine american interest we know of no other picture extant which is of greater value than this.
