是冊為張丈雪房所藏,壽與交十餘年,未得一見。辛巳春二月壽與張丈論及老蓮書畫,出此見眎,欣賞良久,幾不能釋手,張丈曰:“六十年來知此味者誰乎?君乃賞音者。”即以爲贈。壽不勝狂喜,遂擕歸,屬次閑書此以誌幸。 [印]:趙相尉、趙之琛印

2. Kong Guangtao 孔廣陶 (active ca. 1850-1875), 15 columns in semi-cursive script, dated 1859; 3 seals (on a separate leaf):

章侯幼長吳越,壯游京師,性雖倜儻,亦頗自愛,感時艱不遇,借醇酒、婦人以傲世。甲申[1644]後,或稱悔遲,南都破,從貴冑,家亡歸。先生其早有高世志矣。此冊多為勝國時寫,其第三幅款署“庚申[實作庚寅]仲夏”,則順治七年筆,是卒之先二年也。冊中人物、花鳥、山水各盡其妙,師顧、陸,而揖李、趙,信夫當崇禎間與崔青蚓[崔子忠]齊名,有“南陳北崔”之目。然其畫筆卻自天縱,甫四齡時,見婦翁家新堊壁,遂登案畫關聖帝像,長八、九尺,是非人力可及。此周檪園[周亮工]所云“章侯前身是大覺金仙,曾何畫師足云耶”,海內名輩推挹至此。咸豐歲次己未,清明前三日孔廣陶記於汾江西園。 [印]:嶽雪樓鋻藏金石書畫圖籍之章、南海孔氏世家寳玩、至聖七十世孫廣陶印
