Dated [1773] by Ford. Ford inferred a date of 1773 from the appearance of the relief cut found here (Reilly 1179) in "A Solemn farewell to Levi Ames," a broadside "printed and sold at Draper's printing-office" in 1773 (Shipton & Mooney 42506). The cut, however, seems to have been in use as early as 1734; see A Mournful poem on the death of John Ormsby and Matthew Cushing (Shipton & Mooney 40054).
