Like one of the other portaits Coffin painted for the Deming family, this was copied from a portrait miniature. The original on which this is based is in the collection of the New London County Historical Society.

This was one of a group of four portraits Coffin painted for the Deming family, including portraits of Julius Deming, Frederick Deming, Esquire, and Maj. Ebenezer Steel Gleason.
