very Well for drawing on, the owner gave him 
two or three of them for that purpose, and he 
drew figures and compositions on them with 
ink, chalk, and charcoal. Mr. Wayne, a gentle- 
man of the neighbourhood, having soon after 
occasion to call at his father's, noticed the hoards 
in the room, and was so much pleased with the 
drawings, that he begged the young Artist to 
allow him to take two or three of them home, 
which, as but little value was set on them, was 
thought no great favour, either by the painter 
or his father. Next day Mr. Wayne called 
again, and after complimenting Benjamin on his 
taste and pronciency, gave him a dollar for each 
of the hoards which he had taken away, and 
was resolved to preserve. And Doctor Jonathan 
Moris, another neighbour, soon af'te1', also made 
him a present of a few dollars to buy materials 
to paint with. These were the first public pa- 
trons of the Artist; and it is at his own request 
that their names are ,thus particularly inserted.
