C.W. Jefferys' notes about this picture from The Picture Gallery of Canadian History Volume 2
Stuart wears his own hair moderately long, the others wear clerical wigs, with a very slight curl at the edges, and simple in outline. Dissenting ministers abandoned the wig earlier, though Wesley, as still a Church of England clergyman, retained it.
