On this day (December 17) in the year 1850, the following brief
advertisement appeared in the "Boston Daily Evening Transcript":

A DAGUERREOTYPE is nature's true penciling--
    Shadow of a form by friendship held dear;
  Picture of the soul's dwelling--
    Token of love for Christmas and New Year.

A note from Gary:  I received a few responses regarding the Plumbe 
advertisement posted in the 12-8-96 DagNews. I've added the comments to 
that particular day's post and have made the file available (along with 
all previous DagNews messages) on The Daguerreian Society's web site at:

Posted for your enjoyment.      Gary W. Ewer
