Notes

On back of photo: This is the head of my son, looking about 7 years younger than he was at death. Every precaution was taken and so far as I could observe no hand but my own ever touched the plate. The photo shows the strange screen marking under a lens which are seen in a certain proportion of Hope's photos. They are not process printing markings for no paper pictures have appeared of such faces.
