Hand-tinted engraving published by J. Bailler, New York,12’ x 17” framed, titled "The Very Revd Theobald Mathew. The margins have two minor tears not affecting the image. Overall needs a cleaning, VG. (formerly from the Rex Stark Collection.)" Mathew visited the United States in 1849, returning in 1851.[6] While there, he found himself at the center of the Abolitionist debate. Many of his hosts, including John Hughes, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of New York, were anti-abolitionists[8] and wanted assurances that Mathew would not stray outside his remit of battling alcohol consumption. But Mathew had signed a petition (along with 60,000 Irish people, including Daniel O'Connell) encouraging the Irish in the U.S. not to partake in slavery in 1841 during Charles Lenox Remond's tour of Ireland.
