Frederick Billings sent his wife, Julia, this painting from New York in 1870. This was shortly after they purchased the Marsh property and already had several small children. Perhaps the subject reminded Julia of her own young children. It is now on display in what used to be the bedroom of Mary Montagu Billings.
