Alexander Townsend introduces Mr. Worrall, who accompanies John Thomas Powell to the Academy; Powell's deceased father was manager of "our theatrical establishment" and Worrall is "of the painting department in the theatre"; writes, "Much eclat as the visit of the West Point cadets excited here, permit me to assure you, sir, that in point of reputation and for every purpose of instruction the individual military institution is held fully equal to the national."
