The llrst to lie given, "The Case ot Re

was due to the fact that Mr. Jones had lieen
known previously to write plays of serious

STUART'S- LOST PORTRAIT
One of Washington Found in the
' Isle of Man.
It Wan Discovered by a Plillndelpbtan
and Was Stolen a Hundred.
" ' YfarAgo.
Philadelphia, Sept. 19. William A.
Shaw, esq., ot this city, who was formerly
connected with Ambassador Wayne Mat
,Veagh, has Just returned from abroad and
recently secured possession, after a
stay of several weeks on tlie Isle of Man,
U ot a portrait of Gen. Washington, supposed
to hav e been painted by Gilbert Stuart, and
said to have been stolen nearly a century
The portrait in question, according to Mr.
Shaw, was 'discovered in 1891, at a sale
ot household effects of the late Mrs. Tobln
Harrison, a daughter of R.C. Breed, for
merly of" Breed's Island, Boston Harbor,
and who left that place lu 1803, and sub
sequently settled in a house lu Douglas. Isle
of Man, called to this day Mount Vernon.
The portrait is a replica In oil of the
Lansdowne portrait, a full-length painting,
now owned by Lord Rosebery, and is suld
to bo lu a fine ctate of preservation.
There Is a singular story told of this long
lost portrait. It appears that It waafcaintetl
for a Mr. Gardiner Baker, ot New York, an
active member of the Society of St. Tam
many, which, at his suggestion, estab
lished a museum, which. In 179S, was
madu over to Baker, who added, among
other attractions, the full length or the
great general. Three years later, it ap
pears, Baker went to Boston to exhibit the
picture, and died there or1 yellow fever. A
Mr. Lalng secured the picture in settlement
of a claim. Some time afterward a com
mittee, charged with furnishing the Presl
dent's house at Washington, bought tbe
picture and entrusted it to a painter named
Winstanley to pack and deliver. Win
etanley, however, it is stated, copied tbe
Stuart in his own style, delivered the copy
and fled to England with the orlglnaL Af
terward the picture came into the pocses
eion of William Burrows, a picture dealer,
at Douglas, Isle of Man, having been pur
chaecd b him at a sale ot the household
effects at Mount Vernon.
The considerations in favor of this por
trait being the replica originally Intended
for the White Houfe, are stated to be these.
TVinttnnley came to England presumably
with the jwrtrait about the came time as
Breed, and It is presumed not unlikely
that he told It to the latter, as Heath's en
grav Ing was found in the bedroom at Mount
Vernon, which Mr. Shaw has also. In all
its essential imlnts, it is stated, It com
pares with the full length as described.
rne Lanseipwiie portrait, oi wuicn, it is
tnid, a replica has been found, was thesec
ond portrait of Washington painted from
by Gilbert Stuart. The first portrait btu
art destroyed, and the third portrait Is
nvv ned by the Boston Athenaeum, and Is on
exhibition in the Boston Museum of the Tine
Arts Stuart replicas are very frequently
to be met with, aud the Athenaeum portrait
Is the one Stuart seemeel to find the most
profit in copying Lord Rosebery acquired
he Lansdowne portrait in 1890 for 2,000
guineas II was painted in. 1795 for Lord
Shelburne, afterward Marquis of Lans
downe, aud after his death, In 1805, It was
sold for 540 It vv as afterward raffled orr,
when It was won by Delaware Lewis, M.
P. for Devonport, and at his death Lord
Rosebery bought It. The identity of the
painter, Winstanley, who is said to have
"stolen the replica and fled with It to Eng
laud, seems to be wrapped In mystery. It
could not have been the celebrated jwrtrait
painter, Hamlet Winstanley, for he died
five years after Gilbert Stuart was born,
and he Is the only Winstanley who has
ichieved the eminence to be given a place
