The Second Massachusetts Band lead by "Henry Fries-brother of Wulf Fries, the noted violincellist of Boston..."1.  Fries is probably the gentleman on the far left.  Caspar Crowninshield stands in the doorway at the rear, the rest of the identifications attributed to the group picture (see above) should not be treated as "positive", but are based on the opinions of this site's contributing experts.
