theme of universal conversation and admiration since its open-

displayed, as well in the furnishing as in the Daguerreotyping,
without a visit to, and criticism of, this already justly celebra-

   Special pains will be taken to secure

as also Miniatures for handsome Frames, Cases, Lockets, Pins,
Rings, &c., &c.,
   The Rooms having been completed under the supervision of
