Sellers, Charles Coleman, Benjamin Franklin in Portraiture (New Haven: Yale University, 1962)

It is believed that this is the painting that Sellers notes (p. 279) as having been shown by Elmer in the Royal Academy's 1777 gallery exhibit as "A Politician." When Sellers was writing, the painting's location was unknown.
