The original of this portrait was painted for the American Bible Society where it may still be seen. The New-York Historical Society's replica was painted for the subject's daughter, Mrs. Richard Davidson, and was sent to her in New Orleans; the Society purchased it from John Pintard Lewis who had inherited it from his grandfather, John Pintard Davidson, eldest son of Mrs. Davidson.
