These characters were drawn by Evan Jones who has resided 35. years at N. Orleans, and (*the 2d set perhaps) by Labigarre, who only visited the country for 6. or 9 months, but being of an inquisitive intriguing turn could learn much in that time; a Frenchman by birth but an American in all his partialities. he is a man of understanding, but of so so reputation, he married a Livingston, sells Antiseptic gas &c

*see 66. which being of the 2d. set, & speakg. of Jones, makes it probable he did not write it.
