corner of Broadway and Fulton street, entrance 3d door,
where may be had Miniatures which, for beauty of color,
tone and effect, can at all times recommend themselves;
and if not superior, are equal to any that have been here-
tofore taken.  Mr. B. does not claim superiority for him-
self, but leaves his pictures to the criticism of a just
and intelligent public, who, as well as strangers, are
invited to call at the Gallery before going elsewhere,
whether they intend sitting or not.  Likenesses in all
cases warranted to give satisfaction, and colored in a
most beautiful manner, and in which department Mr. B.
does claim superiority, it being filled by a competent and
practical person.  Taken in all kinds of weather, from
8 A.M. till 5 P.M.
   The American Institute awarded a first Premium to Mr.
B. at the late Fair.  Instructions carefully given in
the art.                (d28)                M. B. BRADY
