The news is fairly quiet, so I will give something today that has no 
specific date correlation.

The following advertisement appeared among other various advertisements 
in the "Index to Vol. XXI" for the 1843 "New York Observer":

NATIONAL MINIATURE GALLERY, No. 247 Broadway, South corner of Murray 
street, 2d floor, New York.
   The attention of ladies and gentlemen, visiting or residing in the 
city of New York, is respectfully invited to the above Gallery, where 
may be seen at any time of the day, and without charge, the likenesses 
of the United States Senators, distinguished members of the House of 
Representatives, Judges of the Supreme Court, Officers of the Army and 
Navy, and other eminent Americans, taken by the Daguerreotype, in the

with a view of their being engraved.
