Each silhouette bears the inscription, The within are profiles of General and Mrs. Washington taken from their likenesses on a wall. They are as perfect likenesses as profiles can give. Presented to me by my aunt, Mrs. Eleanor P. Lewis at Woodlawn july 1832. Eleanor Lewis (1779-1852) was a granddaughter of Martha Washington and, upon her marriage to Lawrence Lewis was given the estate Woodlawn, in Virginia, as a wedding present. Supposedly these likeness' were taken on one of her visits to Mt. Vernon.
