Excerpt from The Magazine of Art: May, 1899
One of these, a copy made in the National Gallery, attracted the notice of Tom Taylor, dramatist and critic. When he had learned the boy's pathetic history he sent for him, encouraged him, found him work, and befriended him in other... ways. The friendship thus formed only ended at Tom Taylor's death. He was such a plucky little chap, said this opportune patron he was so delicate-looking, and yet he was so tough. He had a mind of his own and a will of his own.
