Additional information

According to Michelle Guitard's entry in "The Dictionary of Canadian Biography," in 1824 Jacques Viger, a friend of Salaberry, "undertook to raise a subscription to have an engraving done of Salaberry, 'whose name is already part of history.' The engraver, Asher Brown Durand of New York, did the portrait from a miniature by New York artist Anson Dickinson."

This print is found on page 33 of the Charles Berkeley Scrapbook # 1.
