On her return in 1873 she established a studio in Boston, where she has since remained. She has executed portraits and ideal works in groups, busts, medallions, and statues, including a statue of Samuel ADAMS, of which two copies, one in bronze and one in marble, are respectively in the capitol at Washing- ton and in Boston (1863), "Roma" (1865), "Africa," a colossal recumbent figure illustrating the Civil War in the United States (1873), a statue of Harriett Martineau, belonging to Wellesley College (1883), and the fountain of "Leif ERIKSON" (1886).
