Busts $600. Ea.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 1 The rooms of L.G. Mead Jr we found full of work quite crowded with pieces finished or nearly so. Mr. Mead is a small sized modest appearing young man who kindly showed us a good deal without much effort- Finished already for shipment is a large group, heroic size, of Columbus receiving assurance of support from Queen Isabella, beside her a Page, to order, for Legrand Lockwood of NY. $15000 but I opine that Mr Lockwood will be slightly disgusted when he goes up fifth avenue and finds two copies of it (smaller $2600. Ea) in the houses of Vanderbilt and Keep (?)

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 Mr Mead has successfully produced another group, his ideal, $3000, per copy under life size, of Columbus at the moment of discovering land, with two sailors at his feet- a charming conception- He also has two excellent figures, small size $400.
