An English immigrant, his success in his new home is illustrated by his admission to the First City Troop in 1805 and his commissioning of a miniature by Philadelphia artist Raphaelle Peale, son of Charles Willson Peale, in 1814. His wife, Rebecca Allen Slater (1787-1808), is buried at Christ Church. In Very Good- Condition: torn out of a larger; chipping at two corners; minor foxing; clean and legible. Very Good -.
