SOUTHERN SWAMP.


From Richards'"The Landscape of the South," Harper's, 6 (May 1853), p. 729.
This is likely the scene Simms says Richards painted on "the river swamp at my
residence." Note its similarity to "Turtle Cove" (p.1 2). The original graphite and chalk sketch on brown paper, from which this engraving was made, is in the collection of the Georgia Museum of Art, Athens, Georgia.
