From the Cornhill Magazine.

"Philip at Prayer."
Philip at Prayer is one of the many works that Frederick Walker made for William Makepeace Thackeray and the "Cornhill Magazine". It started out with Frederick copying Thackeray's sketches, but Frederick was not satisfied with the arrangement, and persuaded Thackeray that he should do his own interpretation of the subjects. Which Thackeray agreed to, as he could see Frederick's wide ranging talent.
