We add in this connection the sketch of the completed work written by G. Watson James, D. L., of Richmond, Va., which strikes us as eminently accurate and just: As viewed in perspective from the chapel the effect of the work and its surroundings is grand and impressive in the highest degree. The subdued but well-directed light falling through the compartment glass in the ceiling of the mausoleum brings out the head of the figure with a Rambrandt distinctness, while the shadows fall away on all sides in, as it were, a chromatic scale.
