Anna Quincy Waterston -- 3
(not in exhibition)

In April 1866, The Freedmen's Record reported that the sculptor had sent from Rome a photograph of the clay model depicting "The Freed Woman and Her Child" [unlocated]. The paper noted:
"Miss Lewis is anxious to put her work in marble, and Mr. Waterston has kindly offered to receive and transmit to her any contributions on the part of her friends to enable her to do so. . . .She proposes to dedicate her work to Miss H. E. Stevenson and Mrs. E. D. Cheney, as an expression of gratitude for their labors in behalf of the education of her father's race."

Apparently, Lewis modeled this bust shortly thereafter.
