 New York during September 1999, I must make the following notation to the 
notes of Milford Galloway.

There was a letter written in 1929 by Frederick Bentley that includes a 
sentence that makes reference to a picture of Lt. James Galloway and son 
carting part of the "Second Great Chain" being carted to West Point. 

Our first stop at Newburgh was the headquarters of George Washington to find 
out what was known about the picture mentioned in the 1929 letter. I will not 
get into the personality of the museum curator other than he will not forget 
me either. He had been the curator there for the last twenty years and said, 
"the picture had caused him much distress." It seems that many people had 
heard of the drawing and wanted to see it, me included. He also said, "the 
picture was nothing more than an amateurish charcoal drawing by a man from 
Palmyra, New York."  He retrieved the folder that contained a copy of the 
picture and several other sheets of information sent in over the years. 
Milford Galloway, 1838-1913 of Palmyra, appears to have been the artist that 
sent the drawing along with a photograph of himself. I am afraid that the 
description of the drawing by the curator was pretty accurate. 


Palmyra Journal January 23, 1913 reads: Milford Galloway, one of Palmyra's 
oldest and best-known residents, died Saturday morning last, January 18,
