1680. HIGIEMONDO. This man was an able artist in the business of painting. And if the painter's business is to give nature life, this man knew his business, since Sandrart's testimony is that his compositions discovered less of art than nature. He lived in India. And in this same business I may refer to Cuguano, born in Africa. In 1788 he was in the service of Cosway first painter of the Prince of Wales.

1744. AMO.

Antony W. Amo was taken to Europe at an early age, and the Princess of Bruns-wick took charge of his education. He became skilled in the languages and lectured with great success on Philosophy, received at the University of Wittemberg, the degree of doctor of Philosophy, and published several important treatises, in 1744. He was born in Guinea.
