The Old New Orleans
To the Editor of the Times
Sackets Harbor, May 7

Considerable interest having been taken of late in the tearing down and removal of ship New Orleans, which stood for so many years in the navy yard at this place, it may be pleasing for many to know that there is on exhibition in the windows of Sterling & Mosher, in your city, an oil painting of the ship by the celebrated artist, Charles Petersen, of Augurn, N.Y., who visited the Harbor last summer and on the urgent request of his friends took several sketches of the ship which were prized for their accuracy.

Having lately worked one of the sketches in oil, he has placed it in your city for the benefit of any who may wish to see it, and, that it may remain in some of your homes, he has placed a very liberal price upon it. Any one wishing further information on the painting, may obtain the same by calling upon Messrs. Sterling & Mosher, who will gladly wait upon such. Hoping that both love for local history and a fine oil painting will cause a purchaser, we call attention to it.
