DAGUERREOTYPE

PLATES! PLATES !! PLATES !!!--To Daguerreotype Artists and Amateurs.--
In consequence of repeated complaints from Artists of failures to 
obtain fine Portraits, from imperfections in the Plates, the subscriber 
begs leave to inform them that he is manufacturing Plates of a superior 
quality to any that have hitherto been used in this country. These 
Plates have been fairly tried, and tested by several of the most 
experienced and skilful operators in the United States, from whom he 
has received certificates that they are superior to any Plates they 
have ever used before.
