Second Installment

posted Nov 11, 2011, 5:34 AM by David Brown
The second installment of the Sketch of the Life of Robert Ball Hughes by Mrs. E. Ball Hughes is available at New York: 1829-1838. Read Eliza’s account about the beginning of her husband’s sculpture career in America, their portraits by Col. John Trumbull, the statue of Alexander Hamilton and its destruction in the Great Fire, the Hobart Memorial, financial troubles, and the group of Uncle Toby and the Widow Wadman. Read my commentary about Eliza’s account of their time in New York and the events that surrounded them.
