[Lachlan Macquarie, ca. 1819 - watercolour on ivory miniature]ca. 1819

This portrait, along with miniatures of Elizabeth Macquaire (MIN 237) and Lachlan Macquarie Junior (MIN 238), were gifts to Captain John Cliffe Watts of the 46th Regiment from Lachlan Macquarie. 

A note about the provenance of this miniature is located at PXn 52.

The portrait is very similar in style and dress to a miniature of Lachlan Macquarie located at MIN 71.

The frame is similar to one used for a miniature of Elizabeth Macquarie (MIN 237).
