Portrait of James Cook.
"Jan 18 '76. My dear Mrs Lewis, Best thanks; wet or dry I shall come next Sunday at about the time you say. I will tell all about Cook's statue when I come - he is to be on the top of a column so that he must stand - why does the great man wish to see him sitting - he who never rested? Perhaps because he thinks the mighty Captain should rest after so much activity! Ever truly yours, T. Woolner."
