This print, engraved by G. Parker after the drawing by Franquinet (LONG 4432), appeared in Graham's Magazine to accompany an article about Longfellow, one of a series on the contributors to the magazine. The editors commented. "The likeness which accompanies this, we are very sorry to say, is not a very good one. Though correct, perhaps, in the general outline, Mr. Franquinet has failed to give that refined and poetical expression of his original which attracts the regard of every one who sees him in person."
