Photograph of Whittier

Photographic Portrait of John G. Whittier   A finely executed portrait of America’s most meritorius poet, drawn from life by C.A. Barry, and photographed by Silsbee, Chase & Co., has just been published by W. A. Greene, 16 Summer Street, Boston.  The upper portion of the head and face is excellent, but the expression of the mouth fails to do justice to the subject.
